Update: Charlie Sheen calls story 'overblown and overplayed'

Charlie Sheen is calling reports that he trashed a New York hotel room after doing coke with a prostitute "overblown and overplayed." [Insert joke here.]

Realizing that he needed to get out in front of a quickly snowballing story, Sheen did the next best thing to tweeting about it; he sent a text message to a RadarOnline editor reading, in part:

"Oh my man, I'm fine. The story is totally overblown and overplayed as far as the reality of the scenario. I know what went down and that's where it will stay ... under wraps."

Which obviously means that whatever happened was utterly innocent or maybe Sheen was the victim of a diabolical conspiracy plot, possibly involving a Russian sleeper cell tasked with destroying the credibility of a beloved TV veteran with a previously sterling reputation. And honestly -- would Sheen really have been partying with a hooker while his two children and ex-wife slept in an adjacent room? Ahem.
