Charlie Sheen, the ex-sitcom star turned serial ranter, got an unusual assist from D.C. police Tuesday night as he hurried to DAR Constitution Hall for his nearly sold-out “Violent Torpedo of Truth: Defeat is Not an Option” stage performance.



The two sport-utility vehicles carrying the late-arriving Sheen and his entourage to the hall, at 1776 D Street NW, were escorted by two marked D.C. police cars with emergency lights flashing and sirens wailing. And a photo posted on the actor’s Twitter account (@charliesheen) shows they were traveling well above the speed limit.

“[In] car with Police escort in front and rear!” Sheen said in a tweet with the photo attached. “[D]riving like someone's about to deliver a baby! Cop car lights #Spinning!”

The photo, taken inside the SUV in which Sheen was riding, shows the vehicle’s speedometer needle at 80 mph. Through the windshield, the blazing strobe lights of the lead police car can be seen.

“This entire matter is under investigation,” police spokeswoman Gwendolyn Crump said Wednesday.
