Charlie Sheen’s estranged wife Brooke Mueller obtained a restraining order to keep the actor away from her and their sons because she was afraid of violent comments the actor had made in recent days, including threats that he would stab her in the eye with a pen knife.

The order, which was issued after Mueller filed claims of physical abuse and threats, prompted police to take the almost 2-year-old twins from Sheen’s Hollywood Hills home on Tuesday night and return them to her care.

She told the court in a filing that the Two and a Half Men star had also refused to return the boys to her. The order, filed Tuesday and obtained by The Associated Press, requires Sheen to stay 100 yards away from Mueller and their twin sons, Max and Bob.

According to a sworn declaration filed in the case, Mueller said Sheen told her in a phone call Sunday night, “I will cut your head off, put it in a box and send it to your mom!”

In addition to threatening to stab her in the eye with a pen knife, Mueller claims Sheen spit on her feet and punched her on the arm during a recent trip to the Bahamas. She also claims he knocked her unconscious in October 2009 after shoving her to the ground and causing her to hit her head on a couch.

The order and police action was the latest in a multi-day saga during which Sheen has given a series of bizarre interviews in his fight against Men producers. The top-rated comedy remains on hiatus, and its future is in doubt.
