Sheen’s ex-wife arrested on assault, drug charges

Police say Charlie Sheen’s ex-wife, Brooke Mueller, has been arrested in Aspen, Colo., on suspicion of third-degree assault and cocaine possession with intent to distribute, according to the Associated Press.

Authorities say officers arrested Ms. Mueller early Saturday at a nightclub after a woman reported being assaulted by her.

Ms. Mueller posted $11,000 bond and was released from custody. She’s scheduled to be in court Dec. 19. Aspen police spokeswoman Blair Weyer said additional details are not immediately available.

Her attorney, Yale Galanter, had no comment.

Mr. Sheen and Ms. Mueller divorced earlier this year, citing Christmas Day 2009 as the day of their breakup. Mr. Sheen was arrested in Aspen on that day on suspicion of assaulting Ms. Mueller. He completed his probation in that case last November.

Garrison Keillor rethinking his plan for retirement

Garrison Keillor said he’s reconsidering thoughts about retirement.

According to the Associated Press, the host of public radio’s “A Prairie Home Companion” told the Sioux City Journal last week that he thought about quitting the show, but it panicked him and led to him “rethinking the whole brilliant idea.”

He said the show is going well and he loves doing it, so why quit.

In March, Mr. Keillor had said in an interview for the AARP Bulletin that he planned to retire in the spring of 2013, but would have to find his replacement first.

Mr. Keillor’s spokesman, David O’Neill, confirmed the report to the Star Tribune of Minneapolis, saying Mr. Keillor doesn’t have any specific plans to retire and is still enjoying doing the show.
