Each year, New Times puts together a list of the sketchiest politicians, unholiest celebrities, and weirdest human beings to call the Magic City home. So who made the filthy cut this year? We're releasing the names one by one ahead of next week's issue, which comes with a full-page illustration of the dynamic dozen.
Rule number one: don't blame the victim. Hard as we might try, however, it's hard not to find fault in taking money to hang out with professional sleeze-maching Charlie Sheen.
According to the New York Daily News, Miami-based porn star Capri Anderson accompanied the Two and a Half Men star to a boozy dinner in New York before joining him in his ritzy Plaza Hotel room. Once there, the two apparently did the dirty for about a dozen minutes or so.
But Sheen wouldn't be Sheen if the story ended there. Instead, he allegedly went on a naked, drug-induced rampage in which he did $7,000 worth of damage to his suite and locked Anderson in the bathroom until the police arrived. (He said news of the incident was "overblown.")
Anderson later told ABC that Sheen threatened to kill her and called her a "whore." But the actor filed a lawsuit in November claiming that the porn star stole a $165,000 watch from him and tried to extort him for another million.

Whatever happened, they are both class acts. Too bad Sheen doesn't frequent Miami more often. He could be on our list as well. Oh well, maybe next year.
