London: Actor Charlie Sheen had taken the hooker found locked in his hotel wardrobe on a date with his ex-wife the same evening, onlookers claimed.

The Wall Street star was at New York restaurant Daniel on Tuesday with the escort and Richards - who was married to Sheen for four years, reports the Sun.

Later that night, he is alleged to have trashed his room at the Plaza Hotel after launching into a booze and drug-fuelled rage.

A witness at the restaurant said Sheen, 45, seemed "drunk" and "frisky" and spent long periods with the escort in the toilet.

They added: "You don’t have to be an investigator to know what was going on in that bathroom."

Denise, 39, left as Sheen’s behaviour began to spiral out of control.

He was later found by police naked and passed out on a bed, with the vice girl locked in a wardrobe.

Denise accompanied him to hospital but yesterday remained tight-lipped about the incident to protect their daughters.

Last night it was reported Sheen tested positive for cocaine.

But the star - on probation after a bust-up with current wife Brooke Mueler - told a US website: "I’m fine. The story is overblown."

And sources said his representatives have promised to pay the Plaza’s 5,000pound bill for damage.
