Charlie Sheen to alleged US cop killer: 'Call me'
LOS ANGELES (AFP) - Anger Management star Charlie Sheen released an online video on Saturday urging an ex-cop accused of three killings to call him, after the actor was named in the man's chilling online manifesto.
Police are hunting for Christopher Dorner, a 33-year-old disgruntled former LA Police Department (LAPD) officer who threatened to go on a murder spree against police and their families to avenge his sacking five years ago.
In a rambling online statement - in which Dorner threatened "unconventional and asymmetrical warfare" against the LAPD - he at one point describes Sheen as "effin' awesome." Sheen - who was fired from the hit US sitcom Two And A Half Men in 2011 and has a long history of hard partying and scandal - addressed Dorner directly in a brief video posted at TMZ.com.
"Christopher Dorner? Charlie Sheen," the actor says. "You mentioned me in your manifesto, so thank you for your kind words.
