Brooke Mueller Enters Rehab Again

Charlie Sheen's ex has checked into a long-term in-patient treatment center, following her drug-related arrest in Colorado last week

Hopefully the third time is the charm for Brooke Mueller. Following her arrest last week in Aspen, Colo., Charlie Sheen's ex is headed back to rehab for the third time in as many years.

"After further reflection and consideration, Brooke has decided to remove herself from the media spotlight and has entered a long-term in-patient treatment center where she can focus on her recovery without distraction," Mueller's spokesperson Steve Honig said in a statement. "Brooke's goal is to maintain her sobriety, and she believes this is the best option to reach that goal."

Last Friday, Aspen police arrested Mueller, 34, for alleged assault and cocaine possession with intent to sell, after receiving a complaint from a woman claiming to have been attacked by the celebrity.

Mueller's ex-husband Sheen, who truly seems to be in Brooke's corner these days, reportedly shelled out $11,000 to bail her out of jail. That's a huge turnaround from early 2011, when Sheen and Mueller were locked in a vicious battle over custody of their 3-year-old twin sons, Bob and Max.

Perhaps not surprisingly then, Mueller's rep tells People that Brooke will retain custody of the twins, noting that both she and Sheen "recognize the importance of maintaining the children's normal routine."

And for their sake, fingers crossed that Mueller will get her life back on track.
