Police officials said there was no information about an incident taking place at a tavern or a bar, however. "This was basically a welfare check that got blown way out of proportion," they revealed.

"About 6:30 this morning, officers were sent on a disturbance at a different location of our city. When the officers arrived, there was nobody there for them to talk to," Salt Lake City police officials explained to ET. "The information that we have was there was some kind of disturbance in that area."

"I do know that we are not looking for anybody at this time," they added. "The people we were sent to look for have been located and are being talked to by another agency, so as far as on our end, no crimes have been committed, the children are safe and the mother is safe."

According to TMZ, Mueller allegedly walked into a bar, barefoot, with Max and Bob by her side, trying to bum a cigarette. Witnesses at the bar told the outlet that their nanny was also there, but got into an altercation with Mueller, which prompted someone to call the police. Mueller allegedly left before police arrived.

"I'm just trying to get my kids home safe," Sheen told TMZ on Tuesday. "I have no other details that relate to the ongoing event."

ET has reached out to Sheen for comment.

Back in February, ET reported that the former Two and a Half Men star was paying Mueller and another ex-wife, Denise Richards, $55,000 a month each. During an appearance on The Dr. Oz Show, Sheen referred to the plan as "Operation Harmony," explaining that his generosity was intended to bring his kids and exes together.
