On July 1, 2012 Charlie Sheen’s personal assistant and best friend Rick Calamaro was found dead in his Los Angeles apartment by police. According to the police, his body was found surrounded by tons of prescription drugs and bottles of alcohol. This tragedy really comes as no surprise to many people who have been around the actor and his assistant over the last few years. Sheen has been very distraught over this news and many hope it serves as a wake- up call to the embattled actor whose own history of prescription drug abuse has been well documented by the American public. Recently, it was reported that it took the encouraging words of film legend Clint Eastwood to persuade Sheen to get help at a prescription drug addiction center.
