Charlie Sheen is a stickler for manners.
The former "Two and a Half Men" star, who's made more than his share of headlines over the past year, attempted to stress the importance of a civilized society to a female security guard at Los Angeles' Staples Center on Wednesday night -- by launching an obscenity-filled tirade at her.
The etiquette lesson came when a female employee denied Sheen re-entry to the Staples Center after he stepped out for a smoke break during the L.A. Kings game.
Sensing a certain inflexibility on the employee's part, Sheen let loose on her with a flurry of four-letter fury.
"You know what? F---ing blow my balls, alright? You f---ing a--hole," Sheen shouted. "Call the f---ing cops. Do you know what common sense means? F--- you!"
Sheen later told the cameraman who captured the exchange that he was merely trying to instill a sense of civility in the young lady.
"Common sense and common courtesy -- they're, like, gone in society. That's what I was trying to impress upon her," Sheen said. "That's all. Let a guy back in a door that he just walked out of ... It's just about common sense, that's all."
Sheen's spokesman, Larry Solters, suggested that everyone involved -- including the Kings, who were beat by the New Jersey Devils during Wednesday night's game in the Stanley Cup series -- would be better off if Staples merely learned to better accommodate smokers.
"Perhaps it is not just coincidental that the Devils scored their first goal against the Kings shortly after Charlie left Staples," Solters told TheWrap. "Kings – maybe you want to have a smoking section for Charlie if the series comes back for game 6?”
The irony in all this? Sheen's newest series, premiering on FX on June 28, is called "Anger Management."
The other irony? In a seemingly unrelated tweet Wednesday, Sheen posted the cover of the new issue of Rolling Stone, which features the actor puffing on a ciggie.
"Smoke'm if you got'm," Sheen captioned the photo.
Sure -- just don't expect to get back into the hockey game.
