Charlie Sheen was discovered naked and drunk in a New York City hotel room this morning when police arrived to answer a call about an intoxicated male. Sheen was staying at The Plaza Hotel in midtown New York, where hotel security discovered Sheen in a drunken state and called police.
The room where Sheen was staying was "trashed" according to the report on People magazine's site. A chandelier and furniture were damaged within Sheen's room. Sheen was taken to an area hospital, but no arrest was made.
A witness, according to E! News, described Sheen as an "emotionally disturbed individual." Sheen was reportedly in New York with his ex-wife, Denise Richards, and their children.
The New York Post reports that Sheen retired to his room with an unidentified woman, and later became enraged when his wallet and cell phone came up missing.

Randy and Evi Quaid may find themselves expelled from Canada this week, according to E! News. The couple fled the country after bench warrants for their arrest were issued in Santa Barbara in their squatting case. The Quaids were arrested in Vancouver, and have been held after authorities learned that there were outstanding warrants in California. The Quaids are stating that they fear for their lives in the United States, and are seeking asylum in Canada. They've argued that actor friends of Randy Quaid -- including former co-star Heath Ledger -- have been murdered in recent years, and they fear that they may be targets of 'Hollywood star whackers.' The Canadian Border Services Agency says that the Quaids are in the country illegally, and are moving to have them returned to the U.S., and possibly banned permanently from Canada.
