Washington (ANI): Canadian actor Kiefer Sutherland has been charged with misdemeanour assault after allegedly headbutting a fashion designer in a Manhattan nightclub. The actor, who stars in US TV drama '24", surrendered at the First Precinct police station in Manhattan and may face jail time over the incident.
US reports have suggested Sutherland confronted designer Jack McCollough after he bumped into actress Brooke Shields, reports Contactmusic. Within a month, the 42-year-old actor will appear before a judge in Manhattan criminal court to answer the misdemeanour charge, which is likely to result in a 1,000-dollar charge.
However, Sutherland may receive a severe response from Los Angeles authorities if he is found to have violated the terms of a probation term invoked over his second DUI conviction in 2007.
