LOS ANGELES (AP) — Charlie Sheen says he will donate $20,000 in profits and donations from a San Francisco show to the Giants fan who was severely beaten outside Dodgers Stadium.
Sheen’s publicist Barry Klarberg says Monday the donation to Bryan Stow consists of $9,000 in merchandise profits from Saturday night’s show and $4,000 in audience donations. Sheen matched the audience donations and added $3,000 more for the sum.
Klarberg says Sheen was saddened by the attack on Stow on March 31. The paramedic and Giants fan was placed into a medically induced coma after the beating.
Sheen is an avid baseball fan and has drawn cheers for sporting the hometown ball club’s jersey in cities on his “Violent Torpedo of Truth” tour.
