    A disagreement over the terms of Charlie Sheen's proposed work release reportedly held up his plea deal.

    A disagreement over the terms of Charlie Sheen's proposed work release has held up a plea deal in his domestic abuse case, according to a lawyer involved in the negotiations.

    Attorney Yale Galanter said Tuesday that the final paperwork submitted to a judge would have placed Sheen under more stringent rules while out of jail of working, including not being able to smoke. He would only be allowed to eat meals provided by the jail or face sanctions.

    Galanter, who represents Sheen's wife, says that wasn't the plea deal they had hammered out with Pitkin County authorities.

    He says the smoking restrictions were a small part of the disagreement. He said Sheen had been approved to get nicotine patches while in custody.
