ASPEN, Colo., Dec. 26 (UPI) -- Actor Charlie Sheen was released from jail in Aspen, Colo., Christmas Day after being arrested on domestic violence-related charges.

CNN said Sheen, 44, was released from Pitkin County Jail Friday night and is to appear in court Feb. 8 to face felony charges of second-degree assault and menacing, along with a misdemeanor court of criminal mischief.

Police said would not identify the alleged victim in the domestic violence incident that prompted the arrest of the "Two and a Half Men" actor, who was released on $8,500 bond.

TMZ.com reported exclusively that law enforcement sources claim Sheen's wife, real estate investor Brooke Mueller, called 911 while intoxicated Friday.

The sources, whose identities were not reported, said Mueller initially told 911 dispatchers Sheen had assaulted her. She later recanted that story to police, claiming instead she was drunk when she called 911.

Sources said Mueller had a blood-alcohol level of 0.13 after the incident and Sheen had a blood-alcohol level of 0.04.
