A doctor who called 911 on behalf of Charlie Sheen says the Two and a Half Men actor was "very, very intoxicated" and "apparently in a lot of pain."
In a 911 recording released Wednesday by the Los Angeles Fire Department, a caller identifying himself as Dr. Paul Nassif of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills says he received a call from Sheen's residence asking for medical assistance.

"All I know is I got a secretary who called and said [Sheen's] in severe pain and is intoxicated," Nassif said to the dispatcher. "He said he's very worried but he said don't call anybody ...These people were afraid to call." During the call, Nassif can be heard trying to track down the phone number and address for Sheen's home.
Last week, Sheen was admitted to Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles with what his rep described as "severe abdominal pains." The 45-year-old actor was released from the hospital later that day.

The actor told a source quoted by Extra: "I'm not dying." His friend, Steve Brodersen, told the TV newsmagazine Sheen's abdominal pain was the result of a hernia injury, made worse when Sheen laughed too hard at the TV.
Sheen checked into rehab Friday, which forced CBS to place Two and a Half Men on production hiatus. "We are profoundly concerned for his health and well-being, and support his decision," CBS Entertainment, Warner Bros. Television and series executive producer Chuck Lorre said in a joint statement Friday.
