Charlie's Sheen's Car Reported Stolen, Found Off Cliff Below Mulholland [Updated]
Charlie Sheen reported his car missing early this morning and it was found, via OnStar, below 300 feet below a cliff off Mulholland Drive. When police and fire arrived to the vehicle off the 13300 block of Mulholland, not too far from Sheen's home near the Mulholland and Beverly Glen intersection, no one was found inside or nearby.
"They've looked all around the hillside. There's nobody in the car, nobody around (and no) evidence of anybody being around at the moment of impact," an LAPD officer told the Associated Press. On TV, some have speculated that Sheen did it and walked home (and if that's true, he either jumped the fence to his gated community or the guard likely saw him as he entered off Mulholland).
Police and Sheen were both alerted by OnStar of a crash with airbags deployed. Sheen also had called the LAPD saying he thought someone was inside his home. "It was nice to have police come to my house and for once and I didn't have to leave with them," he joked, referring to the recent Christmas Day domestic disturbance at his Aspen home.
Update: A second car from a different owner was found 200 yards away from Sheen's car. More info here.
