Kiefer Will Be

Charged with Crime

5/6/2009 7:28 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0506_keifer_tmz_bn2We've confirmed that Kiefer Sutherland will be charged with misdemeanor assault in connection with the headbutting incident earlier this week.

Kiefer headbutted fashion designer Jack McCollough at an event after-party on Monday -- an attack Jack says was completely unprovoked. We're told Kiefer says he did it after Jack pushed Brooke Shields.

The New York Daily News broke the story. Kiefer will show up at the NYPD and get a desk appearance ticket and his arraignment date will be set.

A rep from the L.A. City Attorney's office tells TMZ they will contact the NYPD and the D.A. to get details and then decide if they will try and revoke Kiefer's probation. He's currently on probation for a DUI.

Just fantastic....WTF am I supposed to do if I gotta wait more than a year AGAIN for a new season of "24"???? If Chris Brown can get away with his shi-t, Kiefer should get a slap on the hand for giving that Jack a taste of a REAL JACK!

KS may be an alcoholic, but what he did was ask the guy to apologize, then got pushed. He's lucky all Kiefer did was headbutt him. All of you nut jobs who hate him or feel you should call him names, what would you do? Probably wuss out and take it up the rear. I agree with #22 m. Kiefer is awesome and a badass to boot.

You know who I am    

Kiefer Sutherland is a homophobe …everyone knows that Canadians don’t like the gay community they and the Mormons got together and stopped prop 8…but that’s a whole other story… Kiefer had a problem with a gay man touching him and in his Canadian rage head butted the man…

Kiefer's not a homophobe and, Rita, you didn't do all your homework on Stand By Me. He stayed in character off-set to help the kids and him both with their roles. Rob Reiner, who directed, talked about what a sweet guy he is. He IS an alcoholic, but he's also a sweet guy who once in a great while loses it when he's drunk. That doesn't excuse it but most of the time he's a happy, horny drunk. I hope he gets help

Noooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!! I love you Keifer! I will support ya!

Guys, he was just acting like his character Jack Bauer would. Honoring women and trying to do good! He does NOT deserve to go to jail. If i was Keifer I would not plead guilty. Make the state pay for a TRIAL! Then they'll drop the charges! Or at least he'll get a juror who's a 24 fan!

I will always stand behind him! Perhaps he should go to rehab though....jail pfft! No WAY!!

First!

It is stupid to be first. You type "First!" instead of thinking of something smart to say.

Who cares. The guy deserved it. I was there.

Ridiculous! The victim has a scratch on his nose! It doesn't warrant revoking probation for a DUI! People should TRY to work things out before they get the law involved.

What is all this talk about him being from Canada and being gay?
Where do you people get your information??
He was born in ENGLAND, married twice (once almost married Julia Roberts) and has a child.
