    Sheen, who recently agreed to return to the CBS hit "Two and a Half Men," was initially charged with second degree assault and menacing in the Christmas Day incident.

    A court hearing during which actor Charlie Sheen was expected to plead guilty to a charge stemming from a Christmas Day dispute with his wife has been postponed.

    Court officials say the hearing has been delayed from Monday to Aug. 2. Yale Galanter, one of Sheen's attorneys, says the defense needs more time to work out details of an agreement that calls for Sheen to plead guilty to misdemeanor assault in exchange for prosecutors dropping more serious charges.

    Galanter previously said the agreement calls for Sheen to serve 30 days in jail.

    Sheen, star of "Two and a Half Men" on CBS, is charged with felony menacing, criminal mischief and assault against his wife, Brooke Mueller Sheen.
