Charlie Sheen was running late to his show in Washington, D.C. earlier this week and he got a police escort to get him to the theater on time. He posted a picture on Twitter of the speedometer in his SUV reaching 80 miles an hour.
But now the police are investigating why Sheen got a police escort in the first place. The headline in The Washington Post reads, "Charlie Sheen's VIP perks: D.C. police escort."
Sheen was an hour late for his show after he was held up in Los Angeles at a hearing in his custody war with estranged Brooke Mueller. He bragged to fans that he got to the show as fast as he could: "We ran more red lights than Brooke Mueller heading to a pawn shop."
The D.C. Metropolitan Police said in a statement, "This entire matter is under investigation." It added, "The government was reimbursed for the services provided."
There is no word on how much the police escort cost.
