The details of Charlie Sheen's domestic incident get uglier as the days pass. An arrest warrant affidavit released yesterday recounts the events of the Christmas Day incident. According to Sheen's wife, Brooke Mueller, Sheen pinned her to the bed, straddling her, and held a knife to her neck. Sheen also allegedly threatened her saying, "You better be in fear. If you tell anybody, I'll kill you.... Your mother's money means nothing, I have ex-police I can hire who know how to get the job done and they won't leave any trace."
Also in the arrest warrant is a claim that the whole dispute was prompted by a silly made-up song. The report says that Mueller frequently becomes jealous of Sheen's relationship with his daughters, and allegedly became angry when Sheen began singing a made-up song to oldest daughter Sam about a Christmas present purchased for her. Mueller was said to become upset and badgered Sheen about why she also didn't have a song from him, and it all escalated from there.
In the 911 call, available at People.com, Mueller tells the operator, "My husband had me with a knife. I was scared for my life and he threatened me."
Sheen, however, denies that the domestic incident occurred like that, instead saying it consisted of arm-slapping and him breaking eyeglasses in half in front of her. Sheen was arrested on suspicion of menacing, second-degree assault and criminal mischief, and was released on $8,500 bail.

Rocker Gene Simmons was sued last week by a Los Anegeles couple who claim that Simmons went crazy when they tried to videotape him. The couple approached Simmons at an area mall and asked him his opinion on monogamy, as the rocker once claimed to have been with over 1,000 women.
