Charlie Sheen tours tornado damage in Alabama

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - Actor Charlie Sheen says he is organizing a relief event for tornado victims in Alabama.

After a tour of the decimated Alberta neighborhood in Tuscaloosa, Sheen told The Associated Press on Monday he was working with local officials to organize a benefit. He said a date has not been set.

Sheen says he wants to give the area "money, hope, faith and healing." The former "Two and a Half Men" star says he is shocked by the extent of the damage.

Sheen was planning to spend the day in Tuscaloosa meeting with residents and first responders. He posed for photographs with police officers and National Guard soldiers.

He was traveling with one of his so-called "goddesses" and former major league baseball player Todd Zeile.
