Many attendees had received their tickets for free, according to a local TV station.

Just one night after wowing the crowd in Houston, Charlie Sheen failed to make the same impression in another part of the Lone Star State.

At his Wednesday night show in Dallas, Sheen was initially met with a standing ovation and loud applause. As has become tradition on his My Violent Torpedo of Truth/Defeat Is Not an Option tour, Sheen came onstage wearing a local sports team jersey -- in the case, a Dallas Mavericks T-shirt.

But the crowd at some point apparently turned on the actor, according to Dallas/Fort Worth TV station KDAF.

Both he and radio personality Kid Kraddick were "heckled severely while on stage," KDAF reported, adding that ticket holders exited the show "early by the dozens."

Most of the crowd surveyed by KDAF said they had gotten their tickets for free.

Among those who attended were Mike Vosters, a Texas Christian University senior who is reportedly one of the 50 finalists in the running to become Sheen's social media intern.

"If he does something wrong, or if he says something against Texas, we're very proud people," Vosters told KDAF before the show started. "So I don't think they're going to give him any slack if he starts cutting jokes or rubbing people the wrong way."
