Charlie Sheen’s ex-wife, Brooke Mueller, was given court permission Monday to return to California following her arrest over the weekend in Aspen, Colo., for alleged third-degree assault and cocaine possession.
“Brooke is back home in Los Angeles spending quiet time with her children,” her rep Steve Honig said in a statement to ABCNews.com. “She has retained her longtime attorney Yale Galanter, who is currently in Aspen investigating the case. Mr. Galanter will vigorously defend Brooke with the goal of having all charges dropped once the facts of the case come to light.”
Honig also denied media reports that Mueller’s arrest had affected custody of her twin boys with Sheen. “There will be no changes in the custody arrangement; the children are remaining with Brooke,” Honig said. “Both Charlie and Brooke’s mother have offered to support Brooke in any way they can.”
Galanter made the request to allow the 34-year-old reality star to return to California so she could reunite with her boys.
Mueller flew to Los Angeles via a private jet following the judge’s decision.
Police say Mueller was arrested after they went on a “routine walkthrough” at an Aspen club and were told by a woman that Mueller had assaulted her.
She posted $11,000 bond and was released from custody. She has a court date scheduled for December 19.
