After Charlie Sheen was arrested for alleged drunken and violent behavior at New York City's Plaza Hotel, he shrugged it off as "one bad night." Maybe so -- but it seems that it was a much worse night for Capri Anderson, the escort and adult film actress who was in the room with him. In a new Nightline interview, Anderson finally tells her version of what happened on the night of Oct. 25, and it's pretty scary. Watch a clip below.
Anderson, who admits she was hired as an escort, says there were red flags from the very start of her date with the Two and a Half Men actor: He was "very loud," and using lots of "derogatory language" and "cuss words." As the night went on, she tells Nightline, he "started yelling racial slurs."
"But it wasn't until he put his hands around my neck," says Sheen's date, "that I really thought to myself, you have gotten yourself in a bad, bad situation."
Anderson describes the night as a horror movie, saying "he could have killed me." The escort was the person who called hotel security, and the police reportedly found her naked and locked in the bathroom of Sheen's suite. However, she hadn't filed charges against Sheen (though during an appearance with her lawyer on Monday's Good Morning America said she would be filing criminal charges) or report to the police that he had threatened her life -- leading to some speculation that she's trying to cash in on Charlie's bad behavior. She also alleges in another Nightline interview that after the incident, she was texted by the actor and offered $20,000 for her silence.
"I'm not going to stand down and be completely walked over, mistreated," Anderson tells Nightline in her defense. "It's not right to hurt people. It's not right to scare people. It's not right to carry on with such disregard for the people around you."
Sheen's attorney, Yale Galanter, has blasted Anderson's claims against the actor: "Ms. Capri never made any allegation to the police of any wrongful conduct on the part of Mr. Sheen on the night of the incident and she had every opportunity to do so," he said in a statement. "She also posted on her website that she was 'fine' and if you wanted to see more of her, for a price, one could enter the web site." He goes on to add: "These allegations against Mr. Sheen are completely false, and are a blatant attempt to cash in on his celebrity."
So did Charlie Sheen get away with terrorizing Capri Anderson, or is she exaggerating an incident that the actor already calls "overblown"? The fact that Anderson locked herself in the bathroom makes us suspect that she was actually fearful for her life, but of course, only two people actually know the truth. Still, we'd advise the ladies out there to be cautious: if Charlie Sheen invites you up to his hotel suite, probably best to take a rain check.
