Charlie Sheen boasts about police escort


Staff member

Charlie Sheen is fond of boasting about his "winning" ways, but authorities are investigating how he won a high-speed police escort on his way to a show in Washington.

Sheen posted a photo on his Twitter account last Tuesday night showing a police car ahead of him with emergency lights flashing, as he was escorted at least part of the way from Dulles International Airport to his stage show, Violent Torpedo of Truth.

Sheen included a picture of a speedometer reaching about 128 kilometres per hour and a message that read: "In car with Police escort in front and rear! Driving like someone's about to deliver a baby! Cop car lights #Spinning!"

At the time, the former Two and a Half Men star was running nearly an hour late for the show after having spent the early part of his day in divorce court in Los Angeles for a custody hearing over the twin sons he shares with his estranged wife, Brooke Mueller.
