Charlie Sheen has a big decision to make now, since prosecutors and his lawyers have agreed to leave his punishment in his domestic abuse case up to him in a sense.
Sheen is being given four options, which is a lot more than “normal” people get, but I won’t start ranting about deferential treatment given to celebrities because it doesn’t matter. It just is.
Charlie Sheen’s options are as follows (via TMZ):
OPTION 1: Charlie will plead guilty to a misdemeanor and serve 30 days in Aspen jail. Charlie could enter the plea as early as June 7 in Aspen and would then immediately begin serving his time. With good behavior, that time could be whittled down to 17 days. After he serves his sentence, the case would be over. Charlie would not be placed on probation.
OPTION 2: Charlie would plead guilty to a misdemeanor and receive no jail time, but would be placed on 2 years probation. We’re told Charlie’s people worry that the actor might slip up and the judge could then throw the book at him and Charlie would end up in jail for a much longer period than 30 days.
OPTION 3: Charlie would receive a “deferred prosecution” — meaning the case would not go forward but Charlie would agree to various conditions — including not breaking the law. After a certain period of time — if Charlie complies with the conditions — the matter would be expunged from his record.
OPTION 4: Go to trial and fight it. Charlie, we’re told, is upset at the Tito Ortiz case … where the UFC star did not even get prosecuted for allegedly doing a lot worse than Charlie allegedly did.
Personally, I’d jump all over the 30 days with no probation. It’s only 30 freakin’ days (or maybe 17), and you’re free and clear. If I (allegedly) held a knife to woman’s throat, I’d be looking at a felony case and years behind bars. Sheen gets the option to serve 30 days and be free.
Do it dude, it’s like a free pass to be a dick.

American mixed martial artist and former UFC light heavyweight champion Tito Ortiz has been arrested for domestic violence at the home he shares with former porn star Jenna Jameson.
TMZ reports that when police arrived to the couple’s home today, Jenna Jameson had “visible injuries”. If someone that well trained knocks you around a bit, you’re damn sure to have some visible injuries.
Tito and Jenna aren’t married, but they have been together since 2006 and have twin boys, Jesse Jameson Ortiz and Journey Jett Ortiz. Yes, Jesse James and Joan Jett. Sigh.
This story is still developing, and we’ll have more information as soon as it’s available.

Ultimate Fighter Chuck Liddell and his extremely hot girlfriend will not be going after the person who taped them working out in a gym — in nothing but shoes — because the naked twosome was in on the act.
The UFC badass and Heidi Northcott agreed to do the revealing workout for a viral campaign for Reebok — a company that Chuck already has a sponsorship deal with.
Still, hope somebody sterilized the equipment after the shoot.
It was announced at the Ultimate Fighter 10 Finale that Liddell would be a coach on season 11 of the Ultimate Fighter with the opposing coach being Tito Ortiz. After the Ultimate Fighter 11 Finale, Chuck Liddell and Tito Ortiz will have their third match against each other.

Undisputed UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar has been hospitalized in North Dakota, and apparently he is not going to be fighting again anytime soon.
The gargantuan fighter pulled out of his schedule main event fight with Shane Carwin at UFC 106 on November 21st, thinking that he had a bad case of the flu. He was then diagnosed with mononucleosis, and the fight contracts were rewritten for January 2nd.Â Lesnar did not return the contract and apparently went to Canada, where he owns some property.
UFC President Dana White confirmed to The Associated Press that the 32 year old former pro wrestler is in very “rough shape”. White stated:
“He’s in a hospital up in North Dakota somewhere right now, he doesn’t want to talk about it publicly, but he’s in bad shape. He went to Canada and some bad stuff happened to him, so we’ve got to figure it out. He is not good. He is very, very sick and he’s going to be out for a while.”
Asked about Lesnar’s mononucleosis, White replied,
“You know, I can’t really talk about it right now, but he’s in rough shape. He’s in really bad shape â€¦ and we’re going to have to do some stuff to take care of this guy. We’re going to have to send him to the Mayo Clinic or to Scripps, or one of those really good hospitals to figure out what’s wrong with this guy.”
