In an Aspen, Colorado courtroom today, Charlie Sheen pled not guilty to domestic violence charges. It was Christmas Day last year when Sheen's wife, Brooke Mueller Sheen, told police in a 911 call that he had put a knife to her throat and threatened to kill her.
Sheen denied threatening his wife with a knife or choking her. He told officers they had slapped each other on the arms and that he had snapped two pairs of her eyeglasses in front of her, according to an arrest warrant affidavit.
Sheen showed little emotion and said nothing during his brief arraignment in Pitkin County District Court. The plea was entered by Richard Cummins, one of Sheen's attorneys.
