NEW YORK, Jan. 7 (UPI) -- A Hanes representative has confirmed the company will no longer run commercials featuring U.S. actor Charlie Sheen.

The "Two and a Half Men" star was arrested Dec. 25 for allegedly assaulting and threatening his wife. No charges have been filed yet in connection with the alleged incident and Sheen is to attend a court hearing on the matter next month.

"Hanes is not running the Hanes television commercials featuring Charlie Sheen, and those commercials will not run again," Hanes spokesman Matt Hall told UsMagazine.com. "The commercials were suspended effective Dec. 28, the first date possible after Mr. Sheen's Christmas Day arrest. ... There are a few (print) trade advertisements featuring Mr. Sheen scheduled to run this spring. Unfortunately, the production schedule of those publications do not allow us to pull those ads."
