Women arrested for allegedly assaulting Charlie Sheen

A woman has been arrested for allegedly assaulting Charlie Sheen, 58, in a Malibu home this week. Deputies responded to a battery/disturbance call at around 1 p.m. Wednesday. The suspect, Electra Schrock, was arrested for assault with a deadly weapon and residential burglary, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said in a statement Friday to USA TODAY. Her court hearing was scheduled for Friday morning.

“Upon contacting the parties involved, deputies identified Charlie Sheen as a victim of assault,” to the sheriff’s department’s statement reads. According to the Los Angeles Times and NBC News, the incident took place at Sheen’s residence; a sheriff’s department spokesperson declined to comment on the matter.

USA TODAY has reached out to Sheen’s representatives for comment. TMZ was the first to report the news. Schrock, 47, faces felony charges, according to sheriff’s department booking records. If convicted of assault with a deadly weapon using force likely to create bodily injury, she faces up to four years in state prison or a year in county jail as well as a fine of up to $10,000. First-degree burglary carries a sentence of up to six years in state prison.

Sheen has largely stayed out of the limelight in recent years and previously claimed to have been “blacklisted” from the entertainment industry. The “Two and a Half Men” star has publicly struggled with drug and alcohol abuse and has been arrested for several domestic incidents, including assaulting his second wife, Brooke Mueller, in 2009, as well as former girlfriend Brittany Ashland in 1996.

In a 2019 appearance on the British morning talk show “Loose Women,” Sheen revealed he had been sober for a year. “Some of it is very surreal,” he said of his past incidents. “To this day, I’m not sure how I created such chaos and wound up in that head space.”

The actor currently appears in the new Max series, “Bookie,” in which he plays a gambling-addicted version of himself. This marks a reunion between Sheen and the show’s co-creator, Chuck Lorre — who hadn’t talked for “at least a decade,” Lorre recently told USA TODAY — after Sheen was fired from Lorre’s “Men” in 2011.
