Poor Charlie Sheen

Charlie Sheen is back in rehab and his hit TV sitcom, Two And A Half Men, is on hold, one day after a 911 caller said the actor was intoxicated and in pain.

According to a person familiar with the emergency call on Thursday, a neighbour of Sheen's informed a 911 operator that the actor was "intoxicated" and complaining of abdominal and chest pains.

The person familiar with the call, who was not authorised to publicly discuss details, spoke on Friday on condition of anonymity. A Los Angeles Fire Department spokesman says copies of the call probably won't be ready for release by the department until tomorrow.

The 45-year-old Sheen was treated at a hospital on Thursday, with his publicist citing the actor's history of hernia problems. The publicist, Stan Rosenfield, says Sheen voluntarily entered a rehabilitation centre on Friday.
