Charlie Sheen pays for therapy dog of teen injured in WI


MADISON (WKOW) -- Actor Charlie Sheen helps pay for an injured teen's therapy dog.

Teagan Marti suffered brain, spine, pelvis and internal injuries after plummeting 100 feet from a Wisconsin amusement park ride in 2010.

A Marti family friend in Eau Claire asked Sheen for $6,000 to cover therapy dog training and the actor wired $10,000 on Thursday.

Sheen says he found it impossible not to help after getting the request. Marti says she didn't really know much about Sheen before, but now thinks he's kind and generous.
