(ANI): Canadian actor Kiefer Sutherland is expected to surrender to
New York Police to answer the complaint involving fashion designer
Jack McCollough and actor Brooke Shields.
Sutherland landed in legal trouble after he allegedly assaulted
McCollough at an early morning party in New York City. Sources say
that the actor will be charged with third-degree assault for the
attack when he surrenders. The actor will be issued a desk
appearance ticket for the misdemeanour, which means that he won't
be jailed and will be free to travel before he's arraigned.
"When the lawyer realized paparazzi could be sitting on his
(Sutherland's) doorstep for two to three weeks, suddenly he wanted
to come in right away and make it all go away," the New York Daily
News quoted a police source as saying.
A pal told The News that Sutherland felt bad about the bizarre
display. "Kiefer is sorry it happened. Absolutely. It's terribly
regrettable," the friend said. The pal also said that Sutherland
lashed out inside because McCollough bumped into actress Shields
and didn't apologize. "Kiefer was provoked," the pal said.
