A luxury car belonging to actor Charlie Sheen has been found crashed in a Los Angeles ravine after having been reported as stolen by the troubled star, police say. Team of firefighters found the wreckage of Sheen's Mercedes early on Friday nestling about 30 metres down a hillside on Mulholland Drive. No victim or passengers were discovered in the car, authorities said.
The search was launched after a mobile phone caller told the California Highway Patrol early on Friday that a black vehicle had gone over the side of the road, CHP Officer Patrick Kimball said. Sheen reported his car stolen, Los Angeles Police Department Officer Bruce Borihanh said. "It is being investigated as an auto theft," Borihanh said.
Los Angeles police Chief Charlie Beck told KTLA television he "had no reason to disbelieve" Sheen's report of the car being stolen. The incident comes as Sheen faces a court hearing in Aspen, Colorado on Monday in connection with a domestic violence incident in December.More news about Sheen's car crashed after alleged theft
