An Unlikely Hero

The Charlie Sheen Helping His Fellow Man Tour continues. Days after bailing out Vatican assassin Lenny Dykstra from jail, Mr. Sheen is turning his attention to assault victim Brian Stow.

Proceeds from any merchandise sold at the actor's weekend show -- part of his six-week "Violent Torpedo of Truth/Defeat is Not an Option" tour -- will benefit the medical fund set up for assault victim Brian Stow, the rep told the Hollywood Reporter Thursday.

This is not the first time the 45-year-old Sheen has used his tour to offer to raise money. He organized a last-minute walk to raise money for bipolar disease when his tour was in Toronto in April. However, the group he had promised to give the money to expressed frustration days later saying they hadn't seen any cash. Sheen's business manager later assured the group, the Organization for Bipolar Affective Disorders, the actor would make the donation.

Nice to see Sheen doing a mitzvah for a man in need. Though I'd be careful taking any cash that came in contact with Sheen's hands.
