Brooke Mueller and Charlie Sheen

Has some sanity returned to Charlie Sheen's world?
Embroiled in a bitter custody dispute
with estranged wife Brooke Mueller, the actor dropped hints Thursday that an agreement was in the works that would keep them out of court for now.
Following a report of a hearing Monday concerning their twin sons, Sheen said on his new Twitter page,
"not sure what all the legal noise is about ... just verbally reached a deal with B. no court mon. yay."
He adds, "Yet the opposition felt it necessary to still harass me with old gibberish .... odd? perhaps. transparent? you betcha'!"
Sheen, 45, provided no more details about the deal, and lawyers were not available for comment.
A source close to Mueller's family confirms that both sides have been talking.
"Brooke is thinking over Charlie's offer and has not decided if she will take it," the source tells PEOPLE. "Brooke is very fragile right now."
Police officers visited Sheen's Beverly Hills mansion late Tuesday night and took his 23-month-old boys, Bob and Max, away from the actor and delivered them to Mueller after she won a restraining order
based on her allegations that Sheen was physically and verbally abusive to her.
The children remain in her custody.
