Sheen Withdraws Lawsuit Over NY Hotel Incident
SANTA MONICA (AP) — Court records show a judge has granted Charlie Sheen’s request to dismiss a lawsuit filed against a woman who locked herself in the bathroom of an upscale New York hotel room that the actor left in tatters.
Sheen claimed Capri Anderson locked herself in the bathroom of the Plaza Hotel because she had taken one of his watches valued at $165,000. His lawsuit sought reimbursement.
Anderson told police the actor put his hands around her throat during the raucous evening in late October, but she managed to slip away.
Sheen sued Anderson for attempted extortion in November after she recounted her version of events on “Good Morning America.”
Court records show Sheen’s attorney was granted a dismissal of the case without prejudice on Friday, which means the actor could re-file.
