Police in Los Angeles have searched the home of actor Charlie Sheen for guns which might be in violation of a temporary restraining order obtained last week by his estranged wife, Brooke Mueller.
Police service representative Stacy Ball at the Van Nuys station said officers arrived at Sheen's home in Sherman Oaks on Thursday afternoon (March 10) and conducted a search which lasted for several hours.
She said officers retrieved one weapon - an antique gun, and added that such searches are routine when a person is subject to a restraining order.
Authorities said Sheen was co-operative.
The actor later tweeted that "the LAPD were AWESOME. Absolute pros! they can protect and serve this Warlock anytime!!!"
Earlier, lawyers said Sheen and Ms Mueller had agreed a deal which settles any custody issues and will end her pursuit of a lengthy restraining order.
They issued a statement saying that the pair had "reached an agreement that resolves their differences".
The statement said the details of the arrangement were being kept confidential for the benefit of their twin sons.
