    Not-So-Happy Holidays: Brooke Mueller Busted for Drug Possession in Aspen

    Brooke Mueller might want to steer clear of Aspen from here on out.

    Following her notorious blowout with ex-hubby Charlie Sheen on Christmas Day 2009 in the Colorado city, the mother of two was reportedly arrested in Aspen on suspicion of felony cocaine possession Friday night, E! News has confirmed.

    And that's not all…

    Mueller was also booked on a misdemeanor third-degree assault charge as well.

    So what went down? 

    While details surrounding the incident are fuzzy at the moment, a spokesperson for the Aspen Police Department told E! News in a statement that officers were on a "routine walk through" at Belly Up, a music venue in Aspen, when a woman reported that an assault had taken place.

    After the woman identified Mueller as the person who assaulted her, police later found Mueller at Escobar nightclub, arrested her and charged her with assault and possession of cocaine with intent to distribute.

    She was later released Saturday morning on $11,000 bail from Pitkin County Jail and is due back in court Dec. 19 to face those charges. 

    This isn't the first time Mueller has gotten into trouble for alleged drug possession, however.

    Back in 2001, she was arrested in Florida for cocaine possession, but the case was later dropped after it was determined she had no drugs in her system.

    Prior to that, she 'fessed up to drinking wine, taking Vicodin, and using marijuana and cocaine after she was arrested on DUI charges in Palm Beach, Fla., in 1996.

    News of Mueller's latest bust comes after her numerous rehab stints this year (and last year), in which she claimed she was trying to beat her addiction for good.

    She last headed to an undisclosed rehab facility in Mexico seeking an alternative cure for her addiction problems in the form of Ibogaine, which is used to treat addiction to alcohol, cocaine and methamphetamine in other countries, including Mexico and Canada (it has been outlawed in the States). 

    Just a couple of weeks before her trip to Mexico, Mueller had successfully completed a 45-day outpatient treatment program and was said to be doing "amazingly well".

    Further details from Mueller's incident are pending until further investigation.
