Charlie Sheen’s return to rehab was catalyzed in part by a neighbor who made a 911 call on Thursday saying he was inebriated and in pain, the Associated Press reports.
A source told the Associated Press that the Two and a Half Men actor was described as “intoxicated” and suffering from chest and abdominal pains in the phone call.
The report matches an earlier statement released by Real Housewives of Beverly Hills stars Adrienne Maloof-Nassif and Dr. Paul Nassif, who said they received a call from someone at Sheen’s house early Thursday morning asking for medical assistance, and thus called 911 on the actor’s behalf.
A spokesperson for the Los Angeles Fire Department said copies of the call would not be ready for release until at least Monday.
Following the call, Sheen was transported to the emergency room at Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles, where he stayed until midnight on Thursday. His publicist said Friday afternoon that Sheen had checked himself into rehab, but did not say why.
“Charlie Sheen has voluntarily entered an undisclosed rehabilitation center today. He is most grateful to all who have expressed their concern.”
Following the move, CBS, Warner Bros. Television and executive producer Chuck Lorre released a joint statement saying they would halt production on Two and a Half Men for the duration of Sheen’s stint in rehab.
“We are profoundly concerned for his health and well-being, and support his decision,” the statement said.
