Charlie Sheen has been shaken by an encounter with the law after U.S. Customs officers inspected his private jet at San Diego’s Brown Field Airport.

The former Two And A Half Men star’s plane was forced by federal authorities to land in the U.S. after returning from Mexico, RadarOnline reported.

The 51-year-old actor cooperated with authorities as he exited the aircraft so it could be inspected by local police, who were joined by sniffer dogs.

A source said told RadarOnline: “Charlie was coming back from Cabo San Lucas, where he’d been on a bender, and had to stop in San Diego for inspection.”

Charlie Sheen pictured with real estate agent Scott Weier in March 2016, has purchased three properties in the small Baja California, Mexico

The source added that police “took all the bags off and had drug-sniffing dogs go through the plane and bags. A dog sniffed around one of the suitcases.

The K9 scratched on the case, and it was opened, but it was a false alarm.”

The pictures taken at the time showed Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents on the tarmac while Charlie talked to uniformed officers.

After the inspection, Sheen was allowed to carry on with his trip.

The HIV-positive actor turned his back on the United States last year to live in a quiet community in Mexico.

The controversial star purchased three homes next to each other in the town of Rosarito in Baja California, Mexico.

Rosarito is a small town located 30 minutes south of the border and is popular among tourists. It is one of the most popular retirement locations among U.S. citizens by the Mexican tourist board’s website.

Sheen – who stated in court papers in 2016 he is $13million in debt – paid under $1 million for three homes, with the intention of living in the middle one and having an empty house on both sides to guarantee his privacy.

Sheen’s downsizing occurred after well-documented money troubles came to light, which include the star asking a judge in March to decrease his monthly $55,000 child support payments to ex-wife, Brooke Mueller, for their 6-year-old twins Bob and Max.

Sheen – who also has another custody settlement with ex-wife Denise Richards for his daughters Sam and Lola – will also be able to save on his healthcare costs in Mexico.
