Stuart P. Slotnick, managing shareholder of Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney's New York office and vice chair of the firm's Business Litigation and Trial Practice group, was quoted in an October 26, 2010, article published by The article, titled "Next for Charlie Sheen? More Freedom, 'Men,' Rehab," reported on actor Charlie Sheen's recent negative media attention. Additionally, three days later on October 29, Slotnick appeared as a guest on the morning news program, "Good Day New York." During the 8-8:30 a.m. timeslot he provided insight into the possible legal actions Sheen could face from his much-talked about October 26 behavior.

As reported in article, "NYPD officers were called early Tuesday (October 26) to Sheen's trashed room at the Plaza Hotel … apparently an 'escort' who had locked herself in the bathroom — called hotel security to report that the actor was going berzerk."

The article went on to report that because Sheen was taken to the hospital instead of jail, "the incident has no bearing on his probation in Aspen, Colorado, which is set to expire in eight days. … [T]here were a number of factors and conditions that would need to be met for prosecutors there to hold him in violation."

As noted in the article, Slotnick "pointed out a number of things in the Tuesday night fracas that could trip Sheen up: He was reportedly in the company of a prostitute, told officers he'd been using cocaine and damaged property at the Plaza Hotel."

"Unless this woman sees this as an opportunity to make money and get famous, she's probably not going to cooperate and go out there and speak," Slotnick told
