CHARLIE SHEEN spent Christmas Day (25Dec09) behind bars in an Aspen, Colorado jail, according to U.S. reports.

The actor, real name Carlos Irwin Estevez, was arrested after allegedly fighting with his wife, Brooke Mueller.

In a statement, a Pitkin County Sheriffs Office spokesman confirmed Sheen was arrested for "second degree assault", "menacing" and "criminal mischief."

The spokesman added, "All charges are coupled with a domestic violence component... As with all domestic violence cases, Mr. Estevez will remain incarcerated at the jail until his case undergoes its initial judicial review."

Sheen and Mueller were celebrating Christmas in Aspen with their baby twins.
