Two and a Half Men star Jon Cryer‘s ex-wife Sarah Trigger was arrested and booked on a charge of felony child neglect. The two were married from 1999-2004 and have an eight year old son Charlie Austin Cryer.
To clarify, the name of the child in question has not been released because he is a minor. Here’s what we do know – the police arrived at her residence in Hermosa Beach to investigate a claim of child neglect and what they found was reported to be disturbing.
The child in question had evidence of bruising as well as rope or chord marks around his neck. A weapon was found on the scene that is believed to have caused some of the visible injuries.
Bail for Trigger was set at $100,000 and she has been released. The child is reported to be out of harm’s way now and the Department of Children and Family Services is involved in the case.
Jon is currently married to entertainment reporter Lisa Joyner. They have an adopted daughter named Daisy.
UPDATE February 26, 2010 – Jon Cryer has told authorities that he believes his ex-wife has hired a hitman to take him out. Evidence is mounting that she asked her current boyfriend, Eddie Sanchez, to bump off the sitcom celebrity. Now there is an audio recording from Trigger’s boyfriend – LISTEN to it here.
