Law enforcement sources tell us … a man who claims to be a former associate of Charlie’s filed the report on October 18 … claiming he’s deathly afraid that Charlie will murder him based on a text message the actor allegedly sent to a mutual friend.
The man told police he had a bad falling out with Charlie recently … and learned that Sheen vented about him in a text to a woman that read, “I’ll blow his head off with my Super 90.”
Law enforcement sources tell us … the case is currently under investigation and cops are hoping to speak with Charlie about the situation ASAP.
A source close to the actor wouldn’t go into detail … but told us, “The accuser is a dishonorably discharged military person with multiple probation violations who is trying to shake him down for money.”
We reached out to Charlie for comment — but no luck.
