Charlie Sheen to alleged US cop killer: ‘Call me’
LOS ANGELES — “Anger Management” star Charlie Sheen released an online video urging an ex-cop accused of three killings to call him, after the actor was named in the man’s chilling online manifesto.
Police are hunting for Christopher Dorner, a 33-year-old disgruntled former LA Police Department officer who threatened to go on a murder spree against police and their families to avenge his sacking five years ago.
In a rambling online statement — in which Dorner threatened “unconventional and asymmetrical warfare” against the LAPD — he at one point describes Sheen as “effin’ awesome.”
Sheen — who was fired from the hit US sitcom “Two and a Half Men” in 2011 and has a long history of hard partying and scandal — addressed Dorner directly in a brief video posted at TMZ.com.
“Christopher Dorner? Charlie Sheen,” the actor says. “You mentioned me in your manifesto, so thank you for your kind words.
