Cops: Charlie Sheen's ex-wife arrested for assault, drugs

Charlie Sheen's ex-wife, Brooke Mueller, was arrested in Aspen, Colorado, Saturday on suspicion of third-degree assault and cocaine possession with intent to distribute, according to police.

Brooke Mueller, the ex-wife of actor Charlie Sheen, was arrested in Aspen early Saturday and charged with assaulting a woman and possession of cocaine with intent to distribute. NBC's George Lewis reports.

Authorities said officers arrested Mueller at a nightclub after a woman reported being assaulted by her. 

Mueller posted $11,000 bond and was released from custody. She was scheduled in court Dec. 19.

Aspen police spokeswoman Blair Weyer says additional details are not immediately available.

Her attorney, Yale Galanter, had no comment.

Sheen and Mueller divorced earlier this year, citing Christmas Day 2009 as the day of their breakup.

Charlie Sheen was arrested in Aspen on that day on suspicion of assaulting Mueller.

He completed his probation in that case last November.
