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."

Now, you're making fun of Keifer's size! Any stats I've read on him..he's 5"11...160 lbs and he doesn't do drugs. In hollywood, they let o.j.simpson go on murder and Keifer is going to jaul for 48 days. Settle down. I will always watch keifer and 24.

Better than what butterfly or Drunkywood? Wow, you must live in glass houses. I wonder what it's like to be perfect!? Cali, he could have killed women or children? What if he killed your son or your brother? You people are idiots! He has an addiction problem, not out there to harm anyone intentionally, go get on a rampage about those who kill intentionally & try to change our laws!

The fact that all these celebrities are getting popped for DUI is WORSE than the average joe (not that is acceptable in ANY situation), but they have the means and funds to hire chauffers or at the least a cab. Stupid and it gives bad example to young people.

"NEVER submit to those ridiculous tests-they will harm you when you get to court. Glad no one was injured. Seems like the majority is overindulging, we can all take a lesson from this. Too much of a good thing is hazardous....
