Charlie Sheen pleaded guilty today in an Aspen court to a misdemeanor assault charge stemming from a Christmas Day argument with his wife, Brooke Mueller Sheen, the AP reports. In exchange for Sheen’s plea, Pitikin County (Colorado) prosecutors withdrew a felony menacing charge and criminal mischief charge. The 44-year-old Two and a Half Men star was ordered to spend 30 days in a rehabilitation facility, and was also sentenced to 30 days of probation and 36 hours of anger management counseling. In a statement after his hearing, Sheen said: ”I’m very grateful to the court and to the people of Pitkin County. I look forward to complying with the court’s decision, getting on with my life and putting this behind me.” The actor was expected back on the Men set tomorrow to begin shooting the eighth season.
