Charlie Sheen tours tornado damage in Alabama

Charlie Sheen toured an Alabama neighborhood ravaged by tornadoes and said he wants to organize a relief event for victims.

The actor went through the Alberta neighborhood in Tuscaloosa and told media that he was working with local officials to organize a benefit. He said a date was not set.

"I want some money, hope, faith and healing to the area," said Sheen, the former star of the sitcom of "Two and a Half Men."

Sheen was fired from the show in March and has been in a bitter dispute with executive producer Chuck Lorre and Warner Bros. Television. Since then, he's launched a stage tour that has captured attention.

Sheen said he decided to visit after receiving an invitation via Twitter from a University of Alabama student.
