The plot sickens.

Charlie Sheen held wife Brooke Mueller down on their bed and threatened to kill her if she told anybody about his bad behavior, according to an arrest warrant affidavit released today to E! News detailing what Mueller told police after the Christmas Day incident with her husband.

Read the report

Sheen became enraged when Mueller told him she wanted a divorce and would take their children away, states the report filed by responding officer Rick Magnuson of the Aspen Police Department. (Mueller talked to a female officer at the scene, who relayed her statements to Magnuson.)

When Mueller said this, Sheen straddled her on the bed and grabbed the upper part of her throat, she told police, adding that he then put a knife to her throat and said, "You better be in fear. If you tell anybody, I'll kill you."

And his alleged comments get nastier.

"Your mother's money means nothing, I have ex-police I can hire who know how to get the job done and they won't leave any trace," Sheen continued, according to Mueller.

Mueller told the police that she feared for her life and that Sheen only let her up when she apologized, telling him, "You're right, you're right, you're right. I'm sorry, I love you."

The 32-year-old mother of twins had red marks on her neck that Mueller said were caused when Sheen held her down, the report continues.

While the female cop was questioning Mueller, Magnuson was busy with Sheen, who is referred to throughout the report by his given name, Carlos Irwin Estevez.

Magnuson states that Mueller, who had called 911, was in the kitchen and Sheen was upstairs when he first arrived at their home.

Once he got ahold of Sheen, the actor told the cop that Mueller had been "abusing alcohol" and that the two had been having marital problems.

Sheen told Magnuson that Mueller was jealous of his relationship with a daughter he fathered with someone else and that their latest argument started when he "shared a song for his daughter."

Their "predominantly verbal" scuffle escalated and both slapped each other's arm during the fight, Sheen said. Mueller "irately" threatened to divorce him and take the kids, and at some point he grabbed her eyeglasses off her face and snapped them in two, the actor admitted.

Per the report, Sheen denies ever threatening his wife with a knife or strangling her.

Once he had seen the weapon, a folding knife with a 4-inch blade, and talked to Mueller, Magnuson put Sheen under arrest.

The Two and a Half Men star was booked on suspicion of menacing and second-degree assault, both felonies, as well as misdemeanor criminal mischief.

He posted $8,500 bail that night, and a routine order of protection was issued mandating that Sheen stay away from Mueller and not try to contact her.

Sheen is due in court Feb. 8 to face the rap if prosecutors opt to press charges.
