Treat women as you would have them treat you, Charlie!
Charlie Sheen copped a "not guilty" plea when he was in court yesterday.
If you recall, the "Two and a Half Men" star was booked for domestic violence charges (menacing, criminal mischief and assault) arising from an incident over the Christmas holidays in Aspen, Colorado.
During the course of a 911 emergency call, Sheen's wife - Brooke Mueller - alleged that the high-profile actor put a knife to her throat during a quarrel and threatened to kill her if she sought a divorce.
On the heels of the incident, Sheen admitted himself to a rehab program here in Southern California, which triggered a shut-down on production at the studio where the popular TV Sitcom was filming (and landing top ratings for the Network).
For weeks there has been speculation - by TMZ and legitimate news outlets, too - that Sheen would go for a plea bargain.
Although Mr. Sheen has admitted arguing with his high-strung emotional wife on the day of the incident, the pint-sized actor has denied threatening Ms. Mueller.
The Judge presiding over the proceedings has set a court date for July 21st (2010).
On that date, I expect a media circus will descend on the courthouse, unless authorities manage to stop posturing and agree to equitable terms Sheen may be inclined to accept in the interests of judicial economy.

A stiff di*k has no conscience!
