Threaten to sue Charlie Sheen and "The Two and a Half Men" star will slap you right back with a suit of his own.

That’s what happened Monday afternoon in Los Angeles County Superior Court when Sheen took preemptive steps against Capri Anderson, whose real name is Christina Walsh, claiming the porn star tried to extort him for "at least One Million Dollars.”

The filing by Sheen’s lawyer, well-known Hollywood attorney Marty Singer, calls Anderson, the star of such films as “Big Bust Cougars” and “Barely 18: Spring Break” as "an opportunistic pornographic film star and publicity hungry scam-artist."

The porn star was discovered in the early hours of Oct. 26, naked and barricaded in the bathroom of Sheen’s suite at NYC’s Plaza Hotel after the actor supposedly had a booze and drug fueled meltdown over a missing $165,000 Patek Philippe watch – which Sheen now says he believes Anderson stole from him.

A demure Anderson went on GMA Monday morning, with a “Nightline” interview to follow, claiming that the actor, who has had several run-ins with the law over the years, was violent and out of control during that night. Anderson called hotel security to the suite. The 22-year-old, who was hired as $3,500 escort that night for the 45-year old actor, also told ABC that she intended to file a civil and criminal complaint against Sheen.

Looks like Charlie beat her to it.

In his 12-page complaint, Sheen says the allegations from Anderson were part of a plan to “shake him down” and "to embarrass him and attempt to damage his career by going to the media with her false tale."

"At no time did Sheen assault, batter or threaten Walsh,” the suit says.

The actor had eight days left on his probation, stemming from a Christmas-Day confrontation in Aspen with now estranged wife Brooke Mueller,when the incident with Anderson occurred in NYC. Lucky for the reportedly naked and disheveled Charlie, he was taken to a hospital and not arrested by NYPD. No efforts were made by Aspen law enforcement to punish Sheen, who was back in Los Angeles and heading back to work the next day after being discharged from the hospital in New York.

He later called the whole thing “overblown.”

In his suit, Sheen asks for a jury trial in his suit and unspecified damages “ in an amount of no less than $165,000” – the exact cost of his fancy watch.
