A spokesman for the New York Police Department (NYPD) has dismissed rumours cops have dropped an investigation into Charlie Sheen's recent hotel room meltdown, insisting the case has not been closed.
The Two and a Half Men star hit headlines back in October (10) when cops were called to his suite at Manhattan's luxurious Plaza hotel during a night of passion with actress/model Capri Anderson.
Sheen had allegedly flown into a rage and trashed the room before being admitted to hospital to be treated for what his representatives claimed was "an adverse reaction to medication".
Anderson subsequently went to the police and lodged a second-degree harassment complaint against Sheen, alleging she locked herself in the bathroom in terror after he accused her of taking his watch and began hurling insults at her and throwing items around the hotel room.
Reports surfaced online this week (beg13Dec10), suggesting cops are not planning to file any charges against Sheen and the case is set to be closed. But a spokesman for the NYPD, Detective Brian Sessa, has dismissed the story and insisted the investigation is still active, telling TheWrap, "They're wrong."
An attorney for Anderson, Keith Davidson, adds, "The story that the NYDA (New York District Attorney) has determined not to file charges against Sheen for the events at The Plaza is NOT true.
"The Deputy District attorney assigned to the case has stated that the investigation into the crimes allegedly committed by Charlie Sheen on October 25th-26th, 2010, has not been completed and that no determination has been made as to what crimes, if any, Mr. Sheen will be charged with...
"They are working diligently to conclude this pending investigation."
