Charlie Sheen delays DAR Constitution Hall by an hour

Charlie Sheen has delayed his appearance tonight at DAR Constitution Hall in Washington by an hour, a shocking development for an actor known for his drug abuse and incoherent rants.

The schedule change for the ""My Violent Torpedo of Truth" show was not explained by his management.

Earlier today, it looked as Sheen would be late to the 8 p.m. show because he was due to appear at a Los Angeles court this morning to fight for custody of his sons.

Sheen's ex-wife, Brooke Mueller, was awarded custody of sons Max and Bob after Sheen was convicted of assaulting her in December 2009. 

His lawyers argued this morning that she was not fit to take care of the children. Alas, the judge on the case eventually decided to side with Mueller. 

TMZ reported that Sheen was seen leaving the courtroom shortly before 11 a.m. California time, which meant he would make it to the East Coast on time for the DAR show. 

And at noon today, his manager Larry Solters, confirmed to the Sun that there were no changes to the schedule.

But, five hours before he was to take the stage in Washington, the announcement came that the show would be pushed back anyway. 

Sheen, Solters wrote without explanation, would take the stage instead at 9 p.m.

Surely, Sheen won't appear any later than that.
