Charlie Sheen’s twin sons Bob and Max were found safe following an ordeal in Utah with their mom (and Sheen’s ex-wife) Brooke Mueller, but one has to wonder what’s in store for the 7-year-olds.

On Wednesday, TMZ reported Mueller was on the run with the children, after patrons in a Salt Lake City bar reportedly saw a barefoot and “disheveled” Mueller there with the kids on Tuesday night.

However, the Utah Highway Patrol found them, and their nanny, safe on the road Wednesday. Muller, who has been in rehab, was taken to an area hospital for evaluation.


COSBY CASE STILL ON

Bill Cosby has lost his recent bid to get sexual assault charges against him thrown out,

Page Six reports that Montgomery County Judge Steven O’Neill denied a motion to dismiss after Cosby’s attorneys said the blind actor’s due process rights were violated.

The disgraced TV star is accused of sexually assaulting ex-Temple University worker Andrea Constand in 2004 when she met him at his house in Philladelphia to discuss her career.

In court papers released Wednesday, Cosby’s lawyers Brian McMonagle and Angela Agrusa argued that he has been vilified by the press and is being used as a “pawn” by District Attorney Kevin Steele, who has criticized the county’s former DA Bruce Castor for not prosecuting Cosby.

They also claimed Cosby’s vision problems have made it impossible for him to defend himself.

Cosby, 79, is also trying to ensure that statements he made in a 2005 deposition won’t be used against him at trial, claiming Castor promised back then not to pursue criminal charges.

The judge will rule on that issue before Cosby’s next court date on Dec. 13.

O’Neill also denied a defense request for as many as 13 women to undergo competency tests in closed court ahead of testifying.

Cosby’s trial is expected to start no later than next June.

In other Cosby news, Bounce TV (which calls itself “the first African-American broadcast network”) will begin airing reruns of “The Cosby Show” on Dec. 19 — “due to popular demand.”
