Charlie Sheen Appears in Court Today

It's the court date that Charlie Sheen hopes will save his marriage.


Sheen and his wife Brooke Mueller will arrive separately at a courthouse in Aspen, Colorado. A judge has barred the couple from seeing one another since their alleged domestic dispute on Christmas Day.


Sheen is being arraigned on felony menacing and misdemeanor assault after Mueller called 911 and told Aspen police that her husband put a knife to her throat and threatened to kill her.


Today the house where the Christmas incident happened now sits empty.


Sheen denies threatening or ever hitting his wife and attorneys for both sides say the couple is "in love" and want the charges dropped, or reduced to a misdemeanor.


Prosecutors are fighting the request and want to press forward with the case against Sheen. They are also opposed to lifting a restraining order which bars Sheen from seeing his wife.


This latest trouble comes on the heels of a rough week for the couple. Police are still investigating how Sheen's Mercedes was stolen from his mansion and ended up at the bottom of a 300-foot ravine.
