OTRC: Brooke Mueller, Charlie Sheen's ex-wife, allowed to return to California after Aspen arrest

Brooke Mueller will be allowed to return home to California after being arrested on assault and drug charges in Aspen, Colorado, on December 3.

A Colorado judge approved a request by Mueller's attorney on December 5, to allow Mueller to go back home so she can care for her children, according to the Associated press.

Mueller, Charlie Sheen's ex-wife, was arrested early on Saturday morning for third degree assault and felony possession of cocaine with intent to distribute, according to an Aspen Police press release.

Police came across an unidentified woman on Friday evening, who claimed Mueller had assaulted her. They found and arrested Mueller just after midnight near the Escobar nightclub in Aspen, Colorado, according to ABC News.

Mueller posted an $11,000 bond and was released on Saturday morning. Her court appearance is scheduled for December 19.

Mueller, 34, has done multiple stints in rehab and has long struggled with addiction.

Brooke Mueller receives $55,000 a month in child support from Sheen, for the couple's 2-year-old twin sons according to divorce papers filed at a Los Angeles court on May 2. Sheen is reportedly paying the same amount to his ex-wife Denise Richards, for the care of their daughters Sam, 6, and Lola, 5.

Sheen and Mueller married in 2008. In August 2010, Sheen pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor assault charge regarding a confrontation with Mueller that had occurred in Aspen, on Christmas Day in 2009. He was sentenced to 30 days in a rehabilitation center, 30 days of probation and 36 hours of anger management.

The actor filed for divorce from Mueller in November. Both have battled substance abuse.

In March, before his firing from "Two and a Half Men," Mueller filed a temporary restraining order against the actor and had their sons removed from his Hollywood home, citing domestic violence and calling him "insane." Sheen denied her claims.

Sheen made a bid for sole custody of their twins earlier this year but was rejected. A judge ruled instead that a previous deal the two had worked out regarding their children will remain in effect. It dictates that Mueller maintains primary custody of the boys and that the two parties must remain sober for the terms of the agreement to remain valid.

It is unclear whether Mueller's most recent arrest will affect the custody agreement.
