E! Online reports that “24” star Kiefer Sutherland has been charged with assault for allegedly head-butting designer Jack McCollough early Tuesday morning. The actor reportedly surrendered to police at the 1st Precinct in lower Manhattan for questioning yesterday.
The rumor has it that Sutherland was chatting with Brooke Shields at an after-party in Manhattan when McCollough accidentally bumped into her. Sutherland, who probably had had one too many already, insisted that the famous designer should apologize to the beautiful actress. The two men then started to argue and Sutherland allegedly head-butted McCollough, leaving him with cuts on his nose.
This isn’t the first time Sutherland is in trouble with the law. He was arrested for driving under the influence in both 2004 and 2007. Sutherland pled no contest to the 2007 DUI charge and had to serve 48 days behind bars.
