Charlie Sheen has been released from prison.

The actor posted $8,500 bond last night, following a significant update to the assault charges leveled against him.

Immediately prior to the bail hearing, wife Brooke Mueller recanted her story to a Colorado police officer. She said she was drunk when she dialed 911 (her blood alcohol test at the time measured a whopping .13) and reportedly backed up Sheen’s story that he was merely defending himself.

Still, authorities will pursue charges against the Two and a Half Men star for now.

Sheen has hired Colorado attorney Richard Cummins and his next court date is schedule for February 8.
