Washington: Charlie Sheen’s former assistant Rick Calamaro was found dead with a pharmacy full of drugs in his LA apartment, according to sources.

Calamaro, who had been in and out of the 46-year-old actor’s life for years, appeared to have had been dead for several days.

Cops found “numerous pain medications and an open bottle of alcohol,” a website has quoted Law enforcement sources as saying.

The aide was a club promoter who had known Sheen from decades ago and was reportedly the person who supplied him with drugs – fuelling the actor’s drug binge last year.

Rick with Charlie on the trip where Charlie allegedly trashed his room at The Plaza Hotel during a dispute with Capri Anderson.

His cause of death has not been determined.
