Kiefer Sutherland is in trouble with the law again after the 24 star headbutted a fashion designer and broke his nose at an after-party for New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Gala at nightspot SubMercer Monday night.
Television’s Jack Bauer reportedly got into an altercation with Proenza Schouler designer Jack McCollough after seeing him knock actress Brooke Shields to the ground. Kiefer reportedly asked Jack to apologize, prompting the designer to push Kiefer. Kiefer retiliated by serving Jack with a knock in the head.
The designer was taken to hospital where he is still receiving treatment.
However, reps for Brooke deny she was involved in the incident, saying, “Nothing happened to her. Jack did nothing inappropriate. It’s not clear what caused Kiefer to do what he did. Jack did absolutely nothing to her.”
Police are currently investigating the incident, and Brooke will reportedly be interviewed by officers Wednesday.
Kiefer, 42, was jailed for 48 days in 2007 after pleading no contest to driving under the influence (DUI). He is currently on probation.
