Brooke Mueller wants to save her marriage to Charlie Sheen. Mueller, 32, has hired Yale Galanter, the criminal defense attorney who once represented OJ Simpson, TMZ reports. Galanter may assist Mueller should she be charged with making a false police report about the now-infamous Christmas Day incident with Sheen, in which she accused him of threatening her with a knife.
Galanter tells TMZ that Mueller in no way concocted or exaggerated her story of Sheen's threats. Instead, he says, she did "minimize her story, like many wives in a similar situation do, when they realize their husband could go to jail."
Regardless, Mueller would like to amend the restraining order in order to get back in touch with her estranged husband. She wants to "work on resolving the conflicts in their marriage," Galanter says. The famed attorney notes to TMZ that his client did not realize her husband would be arrested when she made her frantic 911 call -- but the star's wife has absolutely no plans to recant her story.
Listen to the 911 call Brooke made the night of the incident....
In the call, Brooke tells the dispatcher Charlie has a "knife" and "threatened me" and that she fears for her life. She also says Charlie is packing his stuff and trying to "sneak out the back" of the house. As we first reported, Brooke was legally drunk with a .13 blood alcohol level when she made the 911 call ... at 8:34 in the morning.
