Mueller has been in and out of rehab multiple times in the past.

Her arrest comes just shy of two years after then-husband Charlie Sheen was arrested on Christmas Day 2009, following a domestic dispute with Mueller at the Aspen home they shared.

Sheen was eventually sentenced to rehab and probation for the incident as well as 36 hours of domestic violence treatment counseling.
