Kiefer Sutherland

Popped for DUI

9/25/2007 2:13 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


Kiefer SutherlandJack Bauer isn't untouchable after all.

TMZ has learned that "24" star Kiefer Sutherland was busted on suspicion of DUI in West Hollywood last night, after allegedly blowing more than twice the legal limit of .08. This is the actor's second DUI in the past five years -- he was arrested in 2004. By California law, if he's convicted, he must serve a mandatory minimum of five days in jail.

Police sources tell TMZ 40-year-old Sutherland was pulled over around 1:35 AM PST on the corner of La Cienega and Beverly. Sutherland was at the FOX Fall Eco-Casino party at Area nightclub earlier that evening. The photo in this story was taken at the event.



Sutherland, who was stopped after making an illegal U-turn, was arrested for misdemeanor DUI and transported to the Hollywood Police station. He was booked at 4:09 AM and released at 5:42 AM on $25,000 bail.

We're told Sutherland was "cooperative and mellow" while he was in custody.

According to the L.A. Sheriff's Dept. website, the actor is 5'10" and weighs 150 lbs.

Sutherland is scheduled to face a judge on October 16.

A rep for Sutherland told TMZ "It would be premature to comment at this time."

I wonder if Keifer pulled the "I'm Jack Bauer dammit, call President Palmer!" card when the cops were questioning him?

Kiefer is an addict. He, like ala ddicts , posses's this arrogance....that he would drink and drive AGAIN shows he has a problem...and guaranteed people, this is NOT the first time he's done this since his last arrest....like ALL coke heads and alcoholics, he gives up one thinking he can get away with the OTHER. AND YOU CAN"T KIEFER. One is to much and a hundred is never enough....GET OVER YOURSELF AND GET HELP. CAT IS OUT OF THE BAG< DONT BE A PATHETIC ADDICT BE A COOL RECOVERY EXAMPLE.....

So sad but years ago I was doing hair and makeup for a wedding and 2 of the brides maids were held up after an all night party with Kiefer Sutherland and Woody Harrelson. When the girls finally arrived, they said he was so much fun and he could drink and drink and drink!!
This is his 2nd DUI!

Could and does happen to anyone, except for all you bible thumpin' folks that can't spell. All you drama queens need to chill it's a minor infraction.

I can't feel sorry for all these stupid celebrities that can easily get a ride in a limo. They are so full of themselves that they don't think of the safety of other people out there! Have fun in jail you big ASS - you deserve it!
