Charlie Sheen restraining order

A judge is­sued a tem­por­ary re­strain­ing or­der Tues­day against Charlie Sheen, strip­ping the troubled — a term that ap­pears in­creas­ingly in­ad­equate — tele­vi­sion star of con­tact with his two young­est chil­dren and bar­ring him from com­ing with­in 100 yards his es­tranged wife.

The ac­tion by Judge Hank Gold­berg came after Sheen’s es­tranged wife, Brooke Mueller, filed a de­clar­a­tion chock-full of ac­cus­a­tions against Sheen that might have dropped jaws a month ago but now seemed merely a con­firm­a­tion of the bizarre and men­acing per­son­al­ity on dis­play in his non­stop me­dia ap­pear­ances.
