Reports emerged late Tuesday night saying that Charlie Sheen has surrendered his twin boys to police custody following allegations that the beleaguered Two and a Half Men star had been abusive to his ex-wife. A source has reportedly confirmed to People that the police visited Sheen’s Beverly Hills mansion Tuesday evening and removed the two boys. Earlier on Tuesday, Sheen’s ex Brooke Mueller won a restraining order based on her allegations that the actor was physically and verbally abusive to Mueller. According to People, a judge has prohibited Sheen from getting within 100 yards of Mueller or the children.

Late Tuesday, Sheen tweeted: “My sons’ are fine… My path is now clear… Defeat is not an option..!”

Both Sheen and Mueller are required to attend a hearing on March 22 to determine whether the restraining order is extended.
