D.C. police are investigating why Sheen received a police escort from Virginia into downtown Washington Tuesday.
Metropolitan Police spokeswoman Gwendolyn Crump says that the Police Department's internal affairs unit is investigating the incident.
On Tuesday, D.C. police used lights and sirens as they escorted Sheen from Dulles International Airport to his stage show, "Violent Torpedo of Truth: Defeat Is Not an Option," at DAR Constitution Hall. At the time, Sheen was running nearly an hour late for the show.
Sheen tweeted about the ride and included a picture of a speedometer reaching about 80 mph. The tweet is no longer available on Sheen's account.
Council member Phil Mendelson says he met with D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier on Thursday. He says Lanier did not authorize the escort.
