Charlie Sheen is firing back at an actress/model who has filed a criminal complaint against him by suing her for extortion.
Capri Anderson was with the actor when he reportedly trashed a New York hotel room in October – and now she’s going public with her tearful testimony as she officially accuses Sheen of battery and false imprisonment.

Anderson, 22, claims she locked herself in the bathroom of Sheen’s suite after he started hurling insults at her, throwing a lamp, grabbing her by the throat and threatening her with a shiny object she suspects was a knife.

In a TV interview on Monday morning, she recalled, “I saw him pick something up. I’m not sure if it was an envelope opener, maybe – a knife. I wasn’t at that point paying so much attention as much as I was trying to (get to the bathroom).”

Anderson’s attorney also confirmed his client’s plans to file a criminal report with New York police, alleging battery and false imprisonment.

He added: “She (is) going (to) police today. She’s filing a police report against Mr. Sheen today – a criminal report. She’s going to the NYPD (New York Police Department) to report the action.”

Sheen’s lawyers have denied her claims and now the actor has filed a lawsuit against Anderson, according to, claiming she tried to extort him for $1 million .
