Charlie Sheen, who nearly died of a drug overdose five months ago, received a judge’s permission Monday to get out of rehab. Municipal Judge Lawrence Mira reminded the actor that he was near death when his father, Martin Sheen, reported him to the court for abusing drugs and alcohol while on probation for allegedly knocking his girlfriend to the floor. “Today was a good day,” Sheen, 33, said after the hearing in Malibu. “I’m very grateful today. It’s a good day to be alive. I’ve been able to re-embrace life through this program. I want to thank my family.”
