Actor Charlie Sheen may be downplaying what police described as an alcohol-fueled rampage in a New York hotel, but the mystery woman who was with him reportedly felt "threatened."

The "Two and a Half Men" actor was just days away from finishing his probation on an assault conviction involving his wife when authorities were called to the famed Plaza Hotel, reportedly after the woman – who police sources have identified as a porn actress -- called hotel security for help.

Police sources told ABC News that the actress is 22-year-old Christina Walsh. TMZ reported that the porn star, who works under the stage name Capri Anderson, locked herself in the bathroom, fearing for her safety.

After police responded to the Plaza, Sheen, who was on a family vacation with ex-wife Denise Richards and their two daughters, was taken to the hospital for a psychiatric evaluation. He then flew home to Los Angeles.

But Sheen, who continues to explosively contribute to his bad-boy image, has said that all was well.

"Oh my man, I'm fine," he told RadarOnline.com's senior executive editor Dylan Howard via text message Tuesday night. "The story is totally overblown and overplayed as far as the reality of the scenario."

Sheen's wife Brooke Mueller, who called 911 last year after she said Sheen pulled a knife on her, was asked by TMZ if she was worried about her husband spending time with their young twin boys.

"Oh no, no, no," she responded. "Charlie's going to be just fine."

The support for Sheen, from the public and the women in his life, baffles some. While other celebrities have seen scandals cause their downfall -- see Mel Gibson and Tiger Woods -- Sheen's fans remain enthusiastic.

On the "Two and a Half Men" Facebook page, fans wrote in after the incident with supportive posts such as: "I think it adds to his character" and "Go Charlie!"

"This has happened so many times that it's, 'There goes that Charlie again," said Bonnie Fuller, editor of HollywoodLife.com.

She pointed to Sheen's television character -- also named Charlie -- who is loved despite his hard-partying, womanizer ways.

"It's a blur," she said. "The two Charlies. They blend."

Entertainment Weekly's Dalton Ross agreed.

"Why does the public seem to be slightly more forgiving of Charlie Sheen and his antics?" he asked. "They're certainly not condoning it, but they seem accepting of it in a weird way. They're used to seeing him on screen playing these characters that are out drinking and out with women and stuff."

Drunken Rage or Allergic Reaction: Sheen on Damage Control

Multiple reports claim Sheen was on a cocaine and alcohol binge before his Tuesday morning hospitalization and will be heading back to rehab shortly. Sheen's publicist refused to confirm those reports, telling ABCNews.com, "I do not comment on speculation."

Sheen was found drunk and screaming that he thought he'd lost his wallet, sources said.

But Sheen's publicist offered a much different version of what led the actor to the hospital, saying that "Charlie had an adverse allergic reaction to some medication."

But does an allergic reaction usually prompt a rampage? TMZ.com has obtained photos from the hotel that showed Sheen's room in disarray with a rumpled bed and what appears to be a broken chair. Sheen has reportedly offered to pay for $7,000 worth of damage to the hotel room.
