LAPD Launches 'Felony Threat Investigation' Into Charlie Luster

Actor Charlie Luster is the subject of a felony threat investigation triggered by his ex-fiancée, LA police and the woman'south lawyer told NBC News on Wednesday.

Scottine Ross, a retired pornographic film star, has previously accused Sheen, fifty, in a civil suit of assault, battery, intentional inflection of emotional distress, misleading imprisonment and negligence for failing to disclose that he was HIV-positive during their engagement, which ended in two thousand-fourteenth.

David Ring, an attorney for Ross, twenty-six, who performed below the title Brett Rossi, told NBC News that his client returned to LA police recently to seek a protective order against Sheen.

The order was sought after The National Enquirer and Radar Online published excerpts on March thirty-one of what they said was an audiotape in which Luster confesses to having lied about his HIV status and having threatened to murder Ross.

LA police served a look for warrant Tuesday at the magazine's NY headquarters seeking the audiotape and confirmed Wednesday to NBC News that Luster was the subject of a "felony threat investigation." They'd allow number further details.

The magazine'south parent company, American Media Inc., said in a statement to NBC News that it believes the warrant "violates federal and state law prohibiting the utilize of look for warrants against media companies who are reporting news and information."

The look for warrant, which was obtained Wednesday by NBC News, says Ross told investigators that Luster had unprotected sex with her while he was infected with the human inmmunodeficiency virus that causes AIDS, without informing her of his condition. It said Ross told police that she "endured domestic violence, physical assaults and death threats" while she was with Sheen.

The allegations included in the warrant match those made in a civil lawsuit Ross filed Dec. three in LA County Superior Court. In the suit, Ross alleges that in addition to concealing his HIV status from her, Luster on numerous occasions erupted in violent fits, frequently accompanied by threats.

On a November two thousand thirteen visit to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, for example, Luster punched a hole in the hotel room wall, grabbed Ross and began violently shaking her while screaming obscenities, she alleges in the suit.

In January two thousand fourteen, she alleges, Luster demanded information about Ross'south ex-husband. When she refused to allow it, Luster flipped over a coffee table, threw a punch at her and began kicking her as she lay huddled on the floor, Ross alleges.

Later that month, she alleges, Luster began graphically describing how he wanted to murder her ex-husband and other unidentified people. According to the lawsuit, Ross found text messages on Sheen'south phone indicating that a "hit" had been placed on her ex-husband.

Two months later, the suit alleges, Ross told Luster that she was pregnant with his baby. He again flew into a rage over the prospect of having a "retarded child" owing to his HIV status and browbeat her into getting an abortion she didn't want, the suit says.

Other sections of the suit indict Luster of having thrown a stone pillar at Ross and of having pulled a gun on her. But after each incident — once he'd calmed down or sobered up — he'd be remorseful, sweet and lovable, it says.

When Luster ended their engagement by text message in October two thousand fourteen, Ross says in the suit, she twice attempted suicide — only to be ridiculed by Luster in a text message for not being able to "calculate the appropriate dosage of a vintage drug such as valium to successfully kill yourself."

"His HIV status, my abortion happened to be contributing factors to prove manipulation and excessive abuse — they're just contributing factors to the fact that he abused me," Ross told MSNBC in December.

In a response filed Dec. seven, Luster denied ever having been abusive and called Ross "an extortionist who gets paid for sex as a prostitute and a porn star." He accused her of having violated a non-disclosure agreement by making Sheen'south HIV status public.

A judge granted Sheen'south request latest mo to keep the suit on keep pending arbitration, and number further hearings are scheduled until May two thousand seventeen, according to Ct records.
