Reporter Kirk Hawkins spoke with Sheen outside his home in Sherman Oaks Wednesday morning.
Sheen says after his two young sons were removed from his house overnight, he’s “very calm and focused,” but ready to fight to get them back.

Sheen said the nearly 2-year-old twins, Bob and Max, were removed after a court order was granted to his estranged wife, Brooke Mueller, who is their mother.
Mueller is claiming the youngsters shouldn’t be raised in that environment, where Sheen lives with his two “goddess” girlfriends and where partying that Sheen has described as “epic” has taken place.
The star of CBS’ “Two and a Half Men” appealed on camera to Mueller “to reach out to me” to discuss the situation.
He said he doesn’t know where the boys were taken.
Sheen says the legal move caught him by surprise.
“It came out of the bleachers, actually,” he said. “Yeah, I was told a restraining order was being delivered and I thought, ‘OK, I can deal with that.’ And it was revealed that it was something much more serious.”
Asked why Mueller got the court order, he replied, “It’s just silly. I think she’s latching on to some of this recent press.”
Los Angeles police media relations Officer Cleon Joseph confirmed the Sheen kids were taken away.
“Last night police did respond based on the court order and the kids were taken,” he said. The officer furnished no more details.
