Charlie Sheen is going to rehab after being discovered drunk and naked in a hotel room after spending the night with a prostitute, it has been claimed.

The 45-year-old actor allegedly trashed a New York hotel room in a drunken rage after a night with a hooker.

The Two And A Half Men star was found drunk and naked by security guards at the Plaza Hotel on Fifth Avenue at 2am yesterday.

US magazine Life & Style reported that a naked prostitute was discovered screaming in a locked wardrobe in Sheen’s room.

It has been claimed that tables and chairs had been chucked around the room and a chandelier had been damaged.

“Charlie was incoherent but started screaming slurs at the cops,” a source told the US magazine. “They recognised him immediately and gave him two options: they could take him to the hospital or take him down to the station. Charlie chose the hospital.”

The actor’s ex-wife Denise Richards was staying in a room next door with the couple’s two children. The distraught actress went with the police and left the girls with a nanny.

Sheen is said to currently be under psychiatric evaluation and is considering returning to Promises in Malibu.
