Charlie Sheen seems to be at it again.
The former star of “Two and a Half Men” is known for his erratic behavior and off-screen rants, and he made headlines again on Wednesday when he launched a profanity-laden tirade at a security guard at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
Sheen was there to watch a hockey game between the Los Angeles Kings and the New Jersey Devils – who were facing off in game 4 of the Stanley Cup Finals – and he had stepped out of the arena to smoke a cigarette. When he tried to re-enter the arena, a female security guard told him he couldn’t.
Sheen, who will star in FX’s upcoming sitcom “Anger Management,” didn’t take it well, and lit into the woman. The expletive-laden rant was caught on video by gossip website TMZ.
The Staples Center does not allow patrons who leave to re-enter. There are designated areas inside the arena where smokers can light up.
As Sheen left the arena, he calmly told paparazzi who followed: “Have common sense and common courtesy gone in society? That was what I was trying to impress upon her, you know. That’s all. Let a guy back in a door he just walked out of. I mean, come on, you know.”
The blow-up comes as Sheen appears on the cover of the upcoming issue of Rolling Stone magazine. In the cover story, Sheen appears to have come a long way from last year’s public meltdown featuring over-the-top parties, porn-star girlfriends he called his “goddesses” and bad mouthing the creator of “Two and a Half Men.”
He was fired from the show and went into rehab, but not before he gave a series of bizarre interviews in which denied any substance abuse problems but claimed to be on the drug “called Charlie Sheen.” In other bizarre statements made during those interviews, Sheen claimed to be a “warlock,” said he possessed “tiger blood and Adonis DNA,” and characterized his erratic behavior as “winning!”
Looking back on that period of his life, Sheen, 46, attributed the meltdown to “too much people-pleasing, not enough breaks, over 30 years, forming into one, focused tsunami-like release.”
“I don’t create havoc, mayhem, wreckage. I mean, I did for a while,” he told Rolling Stone. “But it was never part of the master plan.”
