The Los Angeles Police Department has confirmed that it has opened a criminal investigation against Charlie Sheen.
Officer Matthew Ludwig, a spokesman in the LAPD media affairs office, confirmed that a criminal investigation of Sheen was opened and is still ongoing, but had few details.
He said officers from the LAPD’s Van Nuys division opened an case on March 31 and turned over the results to detectives and officers on the LAPD Threat Management team, who are still investigating.
Ludwig said he could not release any information on what the investigation involves and the identity of the accuser in the case is confidential.
Sheen has a history of turbulent relations with the women in his life, and his problems only increased after he acknowledged in 2015 that he is HIV positive and had been for years before he told anyone.
Scottine Rossi, one of the women Sheen claims “extorted” him for millions after they learned of his HIV-positive status is suing him, claiming he reneged on a $1 million settlement and also forced her to abort her baby because of fear the child would be HIV-positive, too.
Rossi, 26, a porn star who performs under the name Brett Rossi, was engaged to Sheen from November 2013 to October 2014. She sued Sheen in December, claiming assault and battery, emotional distress, false imprisonment and negligence, according to documents.
