It seemed Charlie Sheen's "tiger blood" couldn't help him out yesterday, when police came to his home and took his twin sons out of his custody.
The legal move came after his soon-to-be ex-wife Brooke Mueller convinced a judge to give her a restraining order against the actor, claiming he had been verbally and physically abusive towards her.
"I am very concerned that (Sheen) is currently insane," Mueller stated in the document. "I am in great fear that he will find me and attack me and I am in great fear for the children's safety while in his care."
Mueller alleges that Sheen took their twins, Bob and Max, 23 months, from her home without her permission on Feb. 26 and has kept them from her since. She claims that, since their split, he "rarely saw our children and only recently began to show any interest in them."
She also claims that Sheen threatened her when she tried to get the boys back.
"I will cut your head off, put it in a box and send it to your mom," were Sheen's words, she says.
In addition, while on vacation last week in the Bahamas with Sheen and "The Goddesses," Mueller claims her ex fell into a violent rage, punching her and spitting on her feet. She also says Sheen "threatened to stab my eye with a pen knife."
Tuesday, Judge Hank M. Goldberg ordered the young boys be taken from their father and ordered Sheen not to communicate with Mueller or get within 100 yards of her or the kids.
But later that night, Sheen took to his new Twitter page (which he created Tuesday afternoon) to state his case. "My sons' are fine..." he wrote around 10 p.m. PST. "My path is now clear... Defeat is not an option..!" Though he's been on Twitter for less than 24 hours, Sheen already has nearly 800,000 followers -- as if he needed yet another forum for his bizarre (yet highly entertaining) rants!
A hearing is set for March 22 and both Sheen and Mueller are required to attend.
When contacted by People.com and asked if he planned to fight for custody of his sons, Sheen replied with a text message that read: "Born ready. Winning."
