Police raided Charlie Sheen's house last night after receiving an alarming tip that the troubled actor was armed and threatening to hurt himself, reports TMZ. Cops found a rifle from the 1800s and "a few bullets," according to Sheen's attorney. They confiscated the gun, but left without arresting the actor. A restraining order obtained by Sheen's estranged wife, Brooke Mueller, prohibits him from possessing weapons.

Following the several-hour search, Sheen tweeted that the cops were "awesome, they can protect and serve this Warlock anytime." He later wrote: "50 cops in my home. They all left. I'm still here. Winning? 24/7." (More Charlie Sheen stories.)
