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.
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.
