    D.A. to Court: Keep Sheen's Protection Order in Place

    Sorry, Charlie.  If the D.A. has anything to say about it, don't expect to talk to the missus anytime soon.

    Prosecutors in Pitkin County, Colo., are looking to maintain an order of protection issued against Charlie Sheen in the wake of his Christmas Day bust-up with wife Brooke Mueller.

    In court papers obtained by E! News, District Attorney Martin C. Beeson has filed a petition categorically opposing a request by Sheen's counsel, Richard C. Cummins, to dismiss a permanent protection order barring the couple from having any contact—standard operating procedure in cases of suspected domestic abuse in order to safeguard the victim.

    We guess that's what the 44-year-old "Wild Thing" actor gets for being too wild (right, Denise?).

    A spokesperson for Beeson was unavailable for comment.

    However, deputy prosecutor Arnold Mordkin told ETOnline that despite Mueller's request to have the order modified so she can discuss reconciling with her husband, it's his office's policy to keep in place prohibitions that bar Sheen from possessing a weapon, drinking alcohol and using drugs.

    It seems prudent in light of the fact that apparently this isn't the first violent confrontation between the pair.

    Cops were called to the Sheens' Aspen home on Dec. 25 after Mueller dialed 911 and reported that the twosome got into a violent quarrel that resulted in the Two and a Half Men star pulling a knife on her and threatening her life.

    Sheen was arrested and booked on charges of domestic violence, including second-degree assault and menacing, and was released from the county jail after posting an $8,500 bond.

    According to one online report, however, Mueller told officers at the scene in an affidavit that in the months preceding their holiday blowout, the duo got into a row that ended with Charlie knocking his real estate investor spouse to the ground where she hit her head, requiring her to seek medical attention. She did not report the incident, though.

    Sheen's next court date is set for Feb. 8. But lawyers for both him and Mueller are expected to meet at a hearing on Monday and ask a judge to alter the order so they can communicate directly.

    Speaking of communicating, the Pitkin County Department of Social Services has reached out to the Los Angeles Department of Children and Family Services as part of a routine investigation into the welfare of the duo's 9-month-old twin boys, Max and Bob.
