The term charley horse originates from the sport of baseball, which is American.
While there are several stories concerning the invention of this term, its creation seems to have been inspired by a real life baseball player named Charley Radbourne, who was pitching one day and pulled a muscle and could not continue.
A charley horse, put simply, is a cramp or any pulled muscle.
Caught Red Handed
When a person is caught red handed, this means that they have been caught, literally, in the act of committing a crime or an offense.
Examples: "The judge was able to find him guilty real quickly because he was caught red handed in the middle of the bank at night" or "He was caught red handed cheating on her, she saw it herself."
When something is done cold turkey this means sudden, without advance notice, or without practice.
Examples: "He quit drinking all alcohol cold turkey, he just stopped drinking completely one day" or "He decided to quit smoking cold turkey, he smoked his last pack of cigarettes five years ago."
If something is cold potatoes, this means the issue is "dead" or it is not going to be successful.
Examples: "His boss said ‘no’ to giving her a raise, the issue is cold potatoes" or "His wife said the issue is cold potatoes as far as she is concerned, she is not going to change her mind."
