The Cop in Charlie Sheen's Case

I was just reading Radaraonline's article on Rick Manguson, the Aspen cop who busted Charlie Sheen after responding to the 911 call at the couple's rented home on Xmas Day.

I wrote about Manguson during his unsuccessful run against the much-beloved Aspen Sheriff, Bob Braudis. The town dodged another bullet, in my view, when Bob got re-elected.

Here's two of his more inappropriate and borderline ethically-challenged stunts I learned about.

    met in this incident.  But I don't see evidence that this cop was out of line in this case, as wouldn't any cop called to this scene have to (a) do something, or does Colorado still have outdated domestic violence laws? and (b) consider Sheen's history?  He has quite a record re domestic violence charges and even a conviction, so I read.

    ...what Aspen would be like today had Hunter S. won his bid for Sheriff.
