An attorney for Charlie Sheen has asked a judge in Colorado not to let television cameras record a court hearing next week related to allegations that he threatened his wife with a knife.
Attorney Richie Cummins wrote in a motion filed Tuesday in Pitkin County District Court that the actor wants to preserve some privacy for his wife, Brooke, and to protect his right to a fair trial.
Sheen was arrested in Aspen on Christmas Day on charges including felony menacing and domestic violence. He denies threatening his wife with a knife.
The couple's attorneys have said the Sheens want to reconcile. At a hearing Jan. 20, a judge is set to consider their request to revise a protection order preventing them from communicating with each other.
