Charlie Sheen's ex-wife arrested in Aspen

Brooke Mueller is reportedly heading to Mexico to enter a seven-day program at a Cancun rehab facility, where she will see if Ibogaine, a plant-based treatment, will help her become sober, TMZ reported on July 18, 2011. Inogaine, which is extracted from the iboga plant, is illegal in the United States because of its hallucinogenic qualities, acording to E! News, but it is legal in several other countries, including Canada and Mexico, and the drug is used to treat addictions to alcohol, cocaine and methamphetamine. On July 1, Mueller reportedly completed a 45-day outpatient rehab program. Valerie Macon/Getty Images

ASPEN, Colorado - Police in Aspen say Charlie Sheen's ex-wife, Brooke Mueller, has been arrested on suspicion of third-degree assault and cocaine possession with intent to distribute.

Authorities say officers arrested Mueller early Saturday at a nightclub after a woman reported being assaulted by her.

Mueller posted $11,000 bond and was released from custody. She's scheduled in court Dec. 19. Aspen police spokeswoman Blair Weyer says additional details are not immediately available.

Her attorney, Yale Galanter, had no comment.

Sheen and Mueller divorced earlier this year, citing Christmas Day 2009 as the day of their breakup. Charlie Sheen was arrested in Aspen on that day on suspicion of assaulting Mueller. He completed his probation in that case last November.
