(CBS) Authorities have released a 911 call in which a doctor described actor Charlie Sheen as "very, very intoxicated" and in pain.
The Los Angeles Fire Department released the 5-minute recording in which Dr. Paul Nassif said he received a call from Sheen's residence and spoke with a secretary who sounded worried about the 45-year-old actor.
"They said don't call 911, but I got [Sheen] on the phone and he was very, very intoxicated, also apparently in a lot of pain," Nassif said.
Sheen was taken to a Los Angeles area hospital last Thursday and was released later that day. Sheen's publicist, Stan Rosenfield, cited the actor's history of hernia problems and later said his client went into rehab, but he did not say why.
In the 911 call, Nassif is heard asking a dispatcher whether anyone from Sheen's camp had called, and when told that no one had, the doctor said: "These people are afraid to call."
During most of the call, Nassif could be heard finding the address to Sheen's home so Nassif could give it to the dispatcher. Nassif was talking to his wife, Adrienne Maloof-Nassif, a co-star of the reality TV series "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills," and placed another call to find Sheen's address.
When the dispatcher asked Nassif for further updates, he replied: "All I know is I got a secretary who called and said he's in severe pain and is intoxicated. He said he's very worried but he said don't call anybody."
Sheen's off-camera antics have caused a halt of production on television's highest-rated comedy, "Two and a Half Men."
