Days after Charlie Sheen was arrested for an alleged domestic violence incident in Aspen, Colo., his wife's 911 tape has been released. In the call, Brooke Mueller says that her actor husband pulled a knife and threatened her.

In the recording, a shaky and tearful Mueller says, "My husband had me with a knife. I was scared for my life and he threatened me."

Listen to the call here:

Sheen, 44, and Mueller, 32, had been arguing at a friend’s house the night before "and it continued into the next morning," says a source close to Mueller.

"I have people here," Mueller says on the 911 call. "My family is here, but if I don't file this right now … he's in the other room. He is with somebody but he's trying to leave."

When the 911 operator asks for her name, Mueller says, "Brooke" quietly. When asked her husband's name she pauses then says, "It's Charlie Sheen," and begins to cry.

Mueller describes the knife as a "switchblade."

Sheen was booked for second-degree assault, menacing and criminal mischief, according to a spokesperson for the Pitkin County Sheriff's Department in Aspen, Colo. The actor posted an $8,500 bond Friday night and was released from jail at 7 p.m. He is due in court on Feb. 8, 2010 at 10:30 a.m.

Since posting bond, Sheen has returned to L.A. while Mueller and the couple's two 9-month-old twin boys remain in Aspen.
