Actor Charlie Sheen appears to be up to his old antics, unleashing an expletive-laced tirade at a security guard at the Staples Center during Wednesday night's Los Angeles Kings game.

The former "Two and a Half Men" star became upset when he was barred from re-entering the arena after stepping outside to smoke a cigarette, the Los Angeles Times reported.

Upon being denied re-entry, Sheen cussed out the female security guard and repeatedly asked her, "What does common sense dictate?" The episode was caught on video by a TMZ camera crew.

Friends of the 46-year-old actor tried to restrain Sheen, but he pulled away to explain himself to the surrounding paparazzi, according to The Huffington Post.

"It' common sense and common courtesy, they're, like, gone in society," Sheen told the cameraman. "That's what I was trying to impress upon (the security guard) ... Let a guy back in a door he just walked out of. ... It's about common sense, that's all."

Staples Center officials defended the security guard and said the smoking policy is designed for the fan safety, according to the LA Times.

The former "Two and a Half Men" star made headlines last year during a public meltdown in which he compared himself to a warlock, boasted about the "goddesses" he lived with and coined popular catchphrases like "winning."

The actor recently told Rolling Stone he was in "total denial" about the chain of events.
