A judge in Colorado has modified a restraining order against Charlie Sheen, which prohibited the actor from contacting his wife, Brooke Mueller, in an Aspen court on Monday, Access Hollywood has learned. Moreover, the actor was formally charged with a felony and two misdemeanors.

The restraining order was originally issued after Sheen was arrested on Christmas Day, after Mueller claimed to authorities Sheen had threatened her with a knife. Both parties had asked for the order to be dismissed after it was issued. It was temporarily lifted to allow Sheen to visit his wife in a Los Angeles hospital in late January, but was modified officially on Monday at a hearing, allowing the "Two and a Half Men" star and his wife to contact each other.

Both Sheen and Mueller were present for the hearing, where the actor was officially charged with one felony count of menacing, a misdemeanor count of assault in the third degree and a misdemeanor count of criminal mischief, over the December 25 incident.

The hearing was postponed until March 15, when Sheen is expected to enter a plea.

Sheen sat at the defense table with his two attorneys during Monday's hearing while wife Mueller sat behind her husband, and alongside her attorney and mother.

It was revealed at the 15-minute hearing that Sheen has been taking anger management classes since his arrest.
