Kiefer Is Currently Being Booked

12/5/2007 10:36 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

UPDATE: Kiefer was just booked. He is officially an inmate. The booking records show he is 5'10", 150 lbs, blue eyes, blond hair, 40 years old. The arrest time (surrender) was 5:30 PM and he was booked 16 minutes later. According to Glendale PD PIO John Balian he will wear a standard issue orange jumpsuit.

TMZ is at the Glendale City Jail where Kiefer Sutherland is currently being processed. We're told he is wearing slacks and a collared shirt ... for now.

Jail officials tell us he will be searched, have a booking photo taken and be placed in a holding cell awaiting cell assignment. We're told he'll also be served dinner tonight. We hear the chicken ala king is the best!

He was scheduled to turn himself in on December 21, which happens to be his birthday. The plan was to serve when the show was on Christmas hiatus. But because of the writers strike and the fact that the show is on ice, Kiefer checked in earlier.

The Glendale City Jail has 96 beds and 48 cells. The cells are double occupancy -- 10 x 8. There's a toilet, washbasin, water fountain in each cell and a shower in the day room area.

When it comes to visitation, it won't be touchy-feely. All visitations are done on video between 1:00 and 4:00 PM for 15 minutes. A max of two visits per day are permitted.

TMZ spoke with Glendale Police Chief Randy Adams, who said Kiefer will be treated "just like anyone else," adding, "The fact that he's a celebrity -- he checked that at the door when he checked in." Chief Adams said Sutherland will perform laundry and kitchen duties and will serve the entire 48 days consecutively. The Chief said Kiefer will not share a cell, but that is S.O.P. in Glendeezy because all "long term inmates" get their own digs.

Adams also says Kiefer has been "cooperative."

In order to qualify for deportation, he must have a minimum of either 5 convictions, and/or a total sentence adding up to 1 year or more. He has neither.
As for citizenship, he is a legal resident of the USA, and a citizen of Canada,and Great Britain.
In regards to 48 days, excuse the pun, but knock off half of that for good time, that would be '24' days, and '24' days to serve. If the jail gets crowded, inmates are released early.
So of the '24' days, how many will he actually serve???

Okay, this man is an entertainer, but he made a private mistake, didn't hurt anyone and this part of his life should be left alone. With respect to this guy, there are too many more important things, events in our day then this gossip !

What's that on the left of the tray, looks absolutely awful ! Looks like airline food. At least it looks balanced if not tasty.

Kiefer will be back out drinking in 48 days. He's been an alcoholic and he can't control his problem.

Requiem for Jack Bauer:

So this is what it’s come to? Our national hero, Jack Bauer is incarcerated for a meaningless DUI? You know what? If I had “days” like him, I’d knock back a few and speed through some school zones. 48 days?!? Are you joking? Is America ready to leave themselves so vulnerable for such a long amount of time without the aid of their top CTU Agent? Basically, we’ve just given the terrorists the green light to do what they do best – terrorize. Think of the children. What kind of message are we sending to the poor children? Grow up to protect America only to have it spit in your face or grow up to be a celebrity only to stay in jail as long as I stay in line at the grocery store? Jack Bauer is a patriot and should be treated as such. This is not how we repay the man who thwarted an assassination attempt on then Sen. David Palmer, has his beloved wife Teri killed, avenges an ex-President’s murder, and disarmed several nuclear bombs even at the expense of chopping off his partner’s hand. Agent Bauer has gone through enough headaches to have this stupid DUI tarnish his immaculate record. We should be raising him above our shoulders commending him as a hero instead of condemning him to jail. God Bless America and God Bless Jack Bauer.

Have you been there drinking with him all these years or everytime...hmmm must be nice for so many ppl to sooooo JUDGEMENTAL...He's human and made a terrible mistake...the only reason everyone is making such a big deal about this is because he's a celebrity...if he was just another "JOE" living down the street from one would even notice...2nd DUI in 5 years...and yes it was wrong but everyone blows up...PARIS was D&D every night for how long and GOT AWAY with it..(pic is worth a 1000 words) and gets what 18 days and does nothing but whine and cry about it..give me a break at least the man accepted responsibility for it and isn't whining and B!tching about it..
