Ban Bad Celebrities?

Mel Gibson, Charlie Sheen, Chris Brown, David Boreanaz are just four examples of bad celebrities – people embroiled in scandals and accusations of harassment or violence against women.

According to a police report, actor Charlie Sheen’s wife, Brooke Mueller says her husband Charlie Sheen sat on her, strangled her, and held a knife to her throat on Christmas day. Charlie Sheen was arrested on Christmas Day after Brooke Mueller, his third wife, told police he had pulled a knife on her and threatened to have her killed; Sheen pleaded guilty to misdemeanor third degree assault and could have gotten 3 years in jail but a judge sentenced Sheen to a 30-day jail term, and was ordered to undergo 36 hours of counseling on domestic violence. Sheen will receive credit for time already spent in rehab and so he avoids any jail time.
