In a statement, police say officers arrested 34-year-old Mueller early Saturday at a nightclub in Aspen after a woman reported being assaulted by Mueller.

The assault charge is a misdemeanor, while the cocaine charge is a felony. Authorities released Mueller after she posted $11,000 bond.

"It is alleged that she had in excess of 4 grams of cocaine, gross weight," Chief Deputy Assistant District Attorney Arnold Mordkin said, reports the Aspen Times.

The Aspen Times reports that the alleged incident occurred at Belly Up, where a Sublime tribute band was performing.

Mueller is scheduled to be in court Dec. 19. Aspen police spokeswoman Blair Wever says additional details are not immediately available because the investigation is ongoing.

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