Charlie Sheen’s D.C. police escort called into question
By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Charlie Sheen continues to make headlines as his “Violent Torpedo of Truth” tour cruises across America, though this morning, it’s taxpayers questioning how fast Sheen is traveling, and who is helping him travel at such high speeds.
Sheen performed in Washington, D.C. Tuesday night at DAR Constitution Hall, and reportedly was running late from his flight into Dulles International Airport … so he received a police escort to get him to the gig on time.
“At least two marked cars with emergency lights blazing … helped the fired sitcom star and his entourage hurry into the District,” The Washington Post reports this morning, before asking who authorized this excessive use of police assistance.
Days after the incident, Sheen’s camp could not explain who allowed cops to help the late actor, and citizens in the District are upset.
“Citizens of the District don’t want to see their police force used to escort private citizens and that Charlie Sheen, of all people, is getting a personal escort,” said D.C. Council member Phil Mendelson (D-At Large), chairman of the committee that oversees police.
“This entire matter is under investigation,” D.C. police spokeswoman Gwendolyn Crump added, but declined to answer questions about the escort.
