Posted: Updated:

ASPEN, Colo. (AP) — A woman who identified herself as the wife of actor Charlie Sheen said in a 911 call to Aspen police that Sheen threatened her with a knife.

Police released the audio of the call on Monday, three days after Sheen was arrested on suspicion of menacing, second-degree assault and criminal mischief.

Authorities haven't identified the alleged victim, but the woman on the 911 call says her name is Brooke and that her husband is Charlie Sheen. Sheen is married to Brooke Mueller Sheen.

The woman can be heard weeping and sometimes her words are inaudible.

An ambulance was sent to the house but police say no one was taken to the hospital.

The 44-year-old Charlie Sheen is free on $8,500 bond. His lawyer didn't immediately return calls on Monday.

ASPEN, Colo. (AP) — Prosecutors say they probably won't decide until February whether to file charges against actor Charlie Sheen in an alleged domestic violence case in Aspen.

Sheen was arrested Christmas Day on suspicion of menacing, second-degree assault and criminal mischief. Authorities haven't identified the alleged victim.

Chief Deputy District Attorney Arnold Mordkin said Monday the menacing charge is the most serious, usually carrying a sentence of two to eight years in prison and a fine of $2,000 to $500,000.

Mordkin says Sheen's next court appearance is Feb. 8, and no decision on whether to prosecute him is expected until shortly before that.

The 44-year-old star of "Two and a Half Men" is free on $8,500 bond. His lawyer didn't immediately return a call Monday.
