Sheen was charged with felony menacing and two misdemeanors (3rd degree assault and criminal mischief) when his wife called 911 after a fight erupted between the couple. Menacing is a felony charge that carries a one to three year prison charge.
The snag District Attorney Arnold Mordkin told TMZ, occured because:
“We need more time than is available for us to complete some of the finer points [of the plea deal].”
While full details of the plea bargain and it’s recent “snag” are not known, it’s widely expected that Sheen will enter a no contest/guilty please for one of the two misdemeanors, while the felony charge will be dropped.

Both sides talked with Judge James Boyd for two hours in a room next to the courtroom before the hearing began. The participants were described as ‘stern-faced’ after leaving the meeting.
