Charlie Sheen has been attracting a lot of attention lately – including from the cops.

“LAPD detectives responded to Charlie Sheen’s home this evening to investigate a possible violation of a temporary restraining order,” LAPD spokeswoman Norma Eisenman tells PEOPLE of the Thursday night visit to his home in a Beverly Hills gated community.

“It came to the attention of the LAPD that Sheen is the registered owner of firearms,” the LAPD said in a statement late Thursday night, and conducted their investigation at Sheen’s home “to determine if he is in possession of firearms and ammunition in violation of the [restraining order].” They confiscated bullets and an antique gun, but Sheen was not arrested or detained – he, in fact, calmly ate dinner during the search, Sheen’s lawyer Mark P. Gross said outside the home.

Police visited Sheen last week to remove his twin boys from his custody after his estranged wife Brooke Mueller obtained a restraining order.

Earlier Thursday, the former couple reached a private custody agreement, but per standard temporary restraining orders, “the restrained person cannot possess, have, buy or try to buy, receive or try to receive, or in any other way get guns, other firearms or ammunition.”

With police still at the home, one of Sheen’s so-called “Goddesses,” Natalie Kenly, downplayed the events to PEOPLE, saying, “Everything is fine. Nothing to worry about.”

Shortly after they cleared out, Sheen Tweeted, “The LAPD were awesome. Absolute pros! They can protect and serve this Warlock anytime!!”
