Believe it or not, despite being characterized as "emotionally disturbed" and hospitalized last night, Charlie Sheen might not really be in major league trouble.

Go figure.

An NYPD public information officer tells E! News that while the department cannot confirm that Sheen was naked when cops arrived, as has been reported, or that he was unconscious, as of now Sheen will not face any criminal charges for trashing his room at New York's venerable Plaza Hotel.

Meanwhile, the hotel hasn't come forward to lodge any complaint against the star.

That's great news for the 46-year-old star, who only has eight days left to really behave himself. His three-month probation stemming from his Aspen, Colo., domestic violence case ends Nov. 2. According to the terms of his Aug. 2. plea deal: "no use of alcohol in excess, or drugs, RX drugs only in prescribed doses; no violation of criminal laws or ordinances except traffic infractions." Any violation would result in a likely jail stint.

"We don't look for trouble," Aspen Deputy District Attorney Arnold Mordkin tells E! News. "Obviously if he is arrested that is something that would get your attention."

But that didn't happen in this case. Asked whether his office would subpoena Sheen's hospital records in New York, to determine whether Sheen consumed anything that would violate his probation, Mordkin demurred, adding "I have enough to do as it is."

Sheen's rep has blamed the meltdown on an "adverse reaction" to some unspecified medication.

He had been on a break from Two and a Half Men this week, spending time with ex-wife Denise Richards and their daughters in New York, including catching Mary Poppins on Broadway.

A source tells E! News that Sheen has been released from the hospital and is now headed back to Los Angeles on a private jet. 

His assistant was spotted loading suitcases into a car at the Plaza, shortly after police arrived at the hotel to question the manager. Security guards had been stationed outside the actor's room on the 18th floor.
