Charlie Sheen has reached an agreement with authorities in Colorado over domestic violence allegations involving his wife, a prosecutor said Tuesday.

The agreement was confirmed by Chief Deputy District Attorney Arnold Mordkin, who declined to disclose details.

But a source close to the situation revealed to Access Hollywood that the actor will plead guilty on Monday to one count of misdemeanor and will spend 30 days in the Pitkin County Jail.

Sheen had pleaded not guilty to menacing, criminal mischief and assault charges stemming from an argument with his wife, Brooke Mueller Sheen, on Christmas Day at an Aspen home where they were on vacation.

The most serious charge is menacing, a felony that carries a maximum three-year prison sentence.

Sheen's attorney Richard Cummins did not immediately return phone messages seeking comment.

Access Hollywood has also reported that the star's lawyers are trying to work out an agreement with the jail that will allow Sheen to smoke while there. A rep for the jail has indicated that the facility has had a no-smoking policy since 1992.

Sheen is scheduled to be in court Monday for a disposition hearing. His trial had been scheduled for July 21.

Cummins had sought to have statements thrown out that the "Two and a Half Men" actor made to police investigating the case. Cummins argued that an officer questioned Sheen in the basement of a house without advising him of his right to remain silent.

Charlie Sheen denied threatening or hitting his wife but told police that he broke two pairs of her eyeglasses in front of her.

A police officer's arrest affidavit quoted Brooke Sheen as saying the actor pinned her on a bed while holding a knife to her throat and making a threat.

In an audio recording of a 911 call, a woman who identifies herself as Brooke tells the dispatcher, "I thought I was gonna die for one hour."

Brooke Sheen's attorney, Yale Galanter, previously said that Brooke Sheen had asked prosecutors to drop the case. Galanter did not immediately return a message left by The Associated Press.
