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."

What a loser! This is actually his FOURTH DUI, not his second. He was busted back in 1989, 1993. and in 2004 and he's still on probation from that 2004 bust. So if he's gotten caught that many times, think about all the times he took a chance to drive drunk and was lucky enough to not get caught or hurt anybody. If he wants to kill himself with booze more power to him, he should stay home and do it and not endanger the public. He's not above the law as that character he plays is, although he seems to think so. I hope the judge lowers the boom on him, gives him jail time plus requires him to do mandatory rehab, and real rehab, not in some celeb spa that pretends to be rehab. It looks like he's too stupid to stop driving while impaired on his own, the law will have to step in.

See now, Kiefer even gets arrested with class. Bieber should take a lesson from him. Always be polite and mellow when dealing with the police. lol I'm sorry, I know this is horrible, but after a while you get kinda numb hearing all these celebritie- got-a dui stories.
