Charlie Sheen donates money to Giants’ fan that was beaten in L.A.

Actor Charlie Sheen gestures towards fans as he arrives for a sentencing hearing at the Pitkin County Courthouse in Aspen, Colorado in this August 2, 2010 file photo. After hearing chants of “Refund! Refund!” and being booed, even Sheen knew his “Violent Torpedo of Truth” had bombed on its debut in Detroit on April 2, 2011. The comedy revue with rapper Dirt Nasty and comedian Kirk Fox, among others, brought catcalls from the audience and not even Sheen’s girlfriend “goddesses” could win fans.

Charlie Sheen has received plenty of negative, wild and downright zany (do people still use the word “zany?” Ah, to hell with it – I’m using it anyway…) headlines over the past couple of months. So it’s only fair that when he gives something back to society, the media reports on those storylines as well.

According to the New York Post, “Wild Thing” Vaughn donated $20,000 to the foundation for Bryan Stow, the Giants fan who was beaten by a couple of thugs in Los Angeles during the opening weekend of the MLB season. Apparently Stow is not responding to stimulation as much as the doctors would like now that he is out of a medically induced coma. Doctors took Stow off the medication that was keeping him in a coma last Tuesday but while he was able to come off it without suffering any seizures, he is still not responding.

Meanwhile, the two animals that carried out the act are still at large.

Sheen is the latest to contribute to Stow’s fund. On Sunday, the Giants’ minor league teams in San Jose and Fresno gave $43,362 to Stow’s young children in order to help with the loss of wages, family travel and any medical costs that Stow’s insurance doesn’t pick up. People have been very gracious to the Stow family, who must be touched in what can only be described as a difficult time.

Sheen is a huge fan of not only baseball, but Giants’ closer Brian Wilson as well. It’s not surprising that Stow’s situation encouraged him to donate and I think it was an extremely nice gesture. (Especially when you consider what else Sheen could have spent the money on…yikes.)
