While an obvious effort – to this writer anyway – by Charlie Sheen’s people ensues to dig up dirt on his wife and the arresting officer from their Christmas fight, Brooke Mueller clearly has a death wish because she wants to reconcile with Sheen, according to TMZ:
We’ve learned Brooke has hired famed criminal defense lawyer Yale Galanter, who represented OJ Simpson for years. Galanter tells TMZ Brooke did not recant the story she told cops on Christmas Day — that Charlie allegedly held a knife to her throat and threatened to have her killed. But, Galanter says, Brooke did “minimize her story, like many wives in a similar situation do, when they realize their husband could go to jail.”
Galanter tells TMZ he will file papers with the Aspen court this morning, asking the judge to allow Brooke and Charlie to resume contact with each other “so they can work on resolving the conflicts in their marriage.” Galanter says Brooke and Charlie love each other very much, calling what happened on Xmas, “one bad night.”
Brooke’s lawyer goes on to say she didn’t realize Charlie would be arrested after she called 911. You told them he put a goddamn knife to your throat and threatened to end you. What did you expect them to do, bring him a muffin basket? Christ, lady, how dumb are you? Oh, wait, you married Charlie Sheen. Don’t answer that.
