Charlie Sheen is again on standard, effective antiretroviral medication for his HIV after seeking alternative treatment from a Mexican quack. Like all of his relationships, his treatment went great at first and then Charlie soon turned on the doctor in the press when the goat’s milk cure predictably didn’t work. This is Charlie Sheen though, so he didn’t stop there. According to the National Enquirer, the doctor, Samir Chachoua, filed a police report in Mexico earlier this month claimed he was beat up and robbed by two guys very obviously hired by Charlie. During the robbery, they injected him with something that made him woozy and even took his phone and sent text messages from it – to someone named Charlie. Plus they left a note afterwards specifically referencing Charlie.
In the shocking report [from June 8], Chachoua said he dropped his phone and when he looked for it, heard a mysterious voice asking, “Looking for this?”
That’s when he saw two men in their late ’20s – one of them holding his phone. In a blur, the two assailants wailed on the stunned physician and injected hi with an unknown agent that made him “woozy.”
“I felt a strong blow on the back of my head and felt that they had injected me with something, so that I fell to the floor and they began to hit me,” he said. “But in that moment I didn’t feel the blows, and it was at that moment that both of them began to search me and they took my money.”
Chachoua also claimed in the report that the gangsters used his phone to send a series of text messages to an unknown number. Those texts included the 50-year-old Sheen’s name, he said.
According to the police complaint, they read, “He is back… do we do this,” and “tell Charlie need another 1000.”
Chachoua said they left him bloodied with a note that read, in part”We are not criminals… you almost killed Charlie Sheen. We are not fans of Charlie, but no other celebrity has fought to cure AIDS.”

So not only did this quack doctor get beat up by guys hired by Charlie, they pretty much advertised it. Charlie gambled on this treatment and he knew it and joked that he may as well try because he was “half dead anyway.” It didn’t pan out for him so he went back on his meds. This was Charlie’s gamble and no one talked him into it. This all happened around late January/early February. So now it’s been four months and Charlie still hired thugs to beat up the doctor and threaten him. I would say it’s unbelievable, but it’s not, it sounds pretty standard for Charlie.
Again, we’re talking about Charlie Sheen because he’s being given yet another chance to redeem himself to the public. This despite decades of terrible, abusive criminal behavior and a very long police record. Maybe he’ll be prosecuted for willingly spreading HIV without informing his partners, but it’s doubtful.
