Charlie Sheen got off easy, but the taxpayers of Aspen paid 20,000 big ones for his court appearances!
Aspen Police Department spokesperson Stephanie Desaro explains:
“It cost both the Pitkin County Sheriff’s Department and the Aspen Police around $20,000 for his four appearances. The Aspen Police Department was in control of security outside the court, providing officers to deal with the media and things like that while the Sheriff’s Department picked up the bill for the staffing inside the court building.”
Sheen was sentenced to 30 days at Malibu's Promises Treatment Center plus 36 hours of anger management and three months probation.
It's also up to Promises if he can come and go from the center — like a hotel!
This guy gets lucky break after lucky break!
