HOLLYWOOD ACTOR and legendary hell-raiser, Charlie Sheen has worried his friends with his increasingly erratic behaviour.
Sheen's routine normally includes regular alcohol and drug abuse, marital problems and alleged domestic violence. "We're used to seeing televisions coming flying through his front windows and drug dealers arriving and leaving at all hours of day and night," said one concerned neighbour. "Police cars used to arrive on the scene every day to deal with some violent episode or other."
Concerns were raised when, after a few unusually quiet days, the ex-star of Two and a Half Men emerged, soberly dressed and strolled down to the convenience store. Without hitting anyone or swigging from a bottle of whiskey, Sheen bought a copy of USA Today, a bottle of milk and a CD of Doris Day's Greatest Hits.
"I couldn't believe the state he was in," said another neighbour. "He was polite, coherent and spotlessly dressed. He said he was going to put his slippers on, read some Khalil Gibran and watch a James Stewart film before going to bed for an early night."
A spokesperson for Sheen's agent that he was seeking counselling for this latest spate of out of control behaviour.
