Actor Charlie Sheen has had his home searched by police but is insisting reports that they raided his property for guns and drugs are false and that instead they were merely "protecting him."
The star posted on his new Twitter page, "All good here on homefront. All reports are false. I'll explain more very soon."
He then added, "The LAPD were AWESOME. Absolute pros! they can protect and serve this Warlock anytime!"
However, an LAPD spokeswoman has released the following statement to People, "LAPD detectives responded to Charlie Sheen's home this evening to investigate a possible violation of a temporary restraining order. It came to the attention of the LAPD that Sheen is the registered owner of firearms.
"This is an investigation to determine if he is in possession of firearms and ammunition in violation of the [restraining order]."
It's claimed that police confiscated bullets and an antique gun and that while the search was taking place, Sheen continued to calmly eat his dinner.
Last week police visited the star to remove his two boys, from his relationship with his now estranged wife Brooke Mueller, from his care after Mueller obtained a retraining order.
The couple have since reached a private custody agreement, but in accordance with the order, "the restrained person cannot possess, have, buy or try to buy, receive or try to receive, or in any other way get guns, other firearms or ammunition."
TMZ are reporting that police were responding to an alarming call from the troubled actor, who was allegedly threatening to harm himself with a gun.
Sheen, who also has two girls with ex-wife Denise Richards, was fired a few days ago by Warner Brothers from sitcom Two and a Half Men following his increasingly erratic behaviour, including reported drink and drug binges.
