DC Report Determines Sheen Police Escort 'Not Extraordinary'

ABC/RICHARD CARTWRIGHT(WASHINGTON) -- The Washington, D.C. inspector general has determined that the police escort received by Charlie Sheen during a visit to the nation's capital in April was not a violation of protocol.

The Washington Times reports that in an 82-page report released Wednesday, the D.C. Office of the Inspector General deemed the escort to be "not extraordinary," but it offers 11 recommendations for escorts for non-dignitaries.  For example, it encourages Washington's police department to work more closely with other law enforcement agencies on escorts.

Sheen was provided the escort on April 19 to a live performance of his Violent Torpedo of Truth tour after flying in from Los Angeles following a custody hearing.  Less than two months later, two police officers assigned to the unit that provided the escort were transferred to another post.
