Not long before his coke-fueled night of destruction in New York, Charlie Sheen capped off his time in rehab with a boozy bender in Belize. Scroll down for a photo of him and a friend mid-revelry.

Life & Style's press release follows:

An eyewitness reveals to Life & Style that Charlie Sheen had fallen off the wagon much earlier than his recent NYC bust. In fact, the Two and a Half Men star embarked on a booze-filled binge in exotic Belize just one week after leaving court-mandated rehab.

After flying into the tropical village of Placencia by private jet on Wednesday, Oct. 6, Charlie hit local bar, Cozy Corner, early the next day with some friends. The actor spent the afternoon hours guzzling tequila and beer while watching a playoff baseball game on TV.

By Friday evening, Charlie was hosting a rowdy party with two male friends and six women at one of Francis Ford Coppola's lodges. "There were already at least 15 partially empty or empty wine bottles. Charlie's drink of choice was Jack Daniels on the rocks," says the eyewitness, noting that two to three bottles had been emptied before midnight. "Charlie had a rainbow of girls with him. They were there with a purpose to party."

Even as one raucous female guest smashed a full wine bottle over a railing, Charlie encouraged the debauchery. "Everybody started laughing and Charlie yelled to the bartender, 'More wine!'" says the witness. "He was heavily intoxicated."

The local resident tells Life & Style that Charlie partied through the night. "His eyes were as closed as they can be. He's professional at this. This is his lifestyle. He had definitely been drinking the whole trip."
