(LOS ANGELES) -- The Los Angeles Police Department is currently investigating allegations that Anger Management star Charlie Sheen threatened to shoot a man who claims to be a former friend, reports TMZ.
According to a police report filed on Oct. 18, the man claims he is fearful for his life, and more specifically that the actor wants to murder him with a semi-automatic shotgun called a Super 90.
The gossip website reports the man is afraid because of a text message Sheen allegedly sent to a mutual female friend that read, "I'll blow his head off with my Super 90."
A source tells TMZ that Sheen's accuser is a "dishonorably discharged military person with multiple probation violations who is trying to shake him down for money."
