WASHINGTON (AP) — Two District of Columbia police officers assigned to the unit that provided an escort to actor Charlie Sheen have been transferred.

An internal police document obtained Wednesday by The Associated Press shows that Lt. Stuart Emerman and Capt. Robert Atcheson have been removed from the department’s Special Operations Division. Officers from that division gave Sheen an escort on April 19 from Dulles International Airport to a performance at DAR Constitution Hall.

Emerman was a lieutenant in the division’s planning unit, which oversees escorts and major details, and Atcheson was his captain.

Hilton Burton, the commander of the division, says he has not been given an explanation for the transfers. DC police spokeswoman Gwendolyn Crump said she did not know the reason for the transfer.
