Charlie Sheen's Porn Star Date to File Civil Suit

Charlie Sheen. The actor has been in the news for a slew of legal issues, and this week is no exception. The latest headline to hit the Hollywood star: Charlie Sheen's Porn Star Date to File Civil Suit. Yes, the woman (real name: Capri Anderson) behind his hotel rampage last weekend in New York is now said to be taking legal action against the actor.

Charlie Sheen originally claimed his hotel antics were the result of an allergic reaction to some medication he was taking at the time. Since he usually approaches life differently than common folk, Charlie Sheen's allergic reaction wouldn't be the typical case of hives and nausea, but rather rage and nudity. Capri Anderson seems to disagree. Go Figure.

According to the NY Daily News, the 22-year-old Anderson "plans to file a lawsuit against Sheen, claiming she felt her life was in danger." Celebrity news outlet TMZ also adds that Anderson felt like she was being held in the hotel room against her will. So why might Anderson file a civil suit? Money damages and a restraining order are the two likely candidates for Anderson and others in similar (although probably not identical situations).

Money damages could potentially be awarded for any pain and suffering Capri Anderson may have experienced that night, and a restraining order would be a judicial safeguard to help prevent any future incidents. This is all speculation at this point. But one thing remains clear: Charlie Sheen is yet another celebrity example of what not to do.
