Charlie Sheen has done some crazy things in his time, but taking a private jet to Scotland for 24 hours to locate the Loch Ness Monster would have to at least rank in the top five. Even for him.

Sources close to Sheen say like most of his decisions, this was a last minute, spur-of-the-moment thing. Fueled by alcohol and hypothetical situations, we're guessing.

Bringing along a couple pals, Sheen rented a castle next to the enormous lake in hopes of getting a glimpse of the mythical creature. They even rented a boat and headed out on the loch with only a bottle of Scotch as their "scientific equipment" for finding the creature.

And, of course, Charlie wore a bronze helmet. As you do:

The sad part of this story is he came back empty-handed, when our preferred ending would have seen Charlie riding into town on the back of a plesiosaur while drinking said bottle of Scotch, as disbelieving historians breathlessly whispered, "He did it, the bastard really did it."

Fade to black.
