Kiefer Sutherland -- I Stood Up for Brooke Shields

5/6/2009 9:06 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Kiefer SutherlandLaw enforcement sources tell us Kiefer Sutherland headbutted a man in New York City Monday night, causing lacerations on the man's nose -- all while defending the honor of one Brooke Shields ... so he says.

It happened at an after-party for the Met Costume Institute Gala Monday night. We're told witnesses say the alleged victim -- Proenza Schouler designer Jack McCollough -- allegedly knocked Brooke Shields over and Kiefer saw it happen. The witnesses say Kiefer went over to the man and told him to apologize to her. At that point they say McCollough pushed Kiefer and the actor responded with a headbutt.

A police report was taken and the incident is under investigation.

Complicating it for Kiefer -- he's on probation in L.A. for a DUI, and one of the terms is that he obey all laws. No word on whether L.A. prosecutors will pursue the matter.

The world needs more people like Kiefer. Hopefully the LA DA won't pull the power card & press charges.

Good for Kiefer. Hey if he was pushed he has the right to defend himself. Yeah, I can see the L.A. D.A's office going after Kiefer for this...since they lose all their big cases. Oh, and I am sure they will end up dismissing the case against Chris Brown. Because a headbutt to a man is worse than beating a woman ...

Love him!!!! Doesn't surprise me as he has always struck me as a "stand up guy", and a little chivalry is nice to see.

I don't approve of violence, but this was defending a lady. That was gallant. On a scale of 1 to 10 he gets a 24!

Guy should press charges and or sue douchebag Sutherland. Keifer thinks he's a bad ass in real life, ain't so, he's just a multi-millionaire douchebag.

BET HE WAS DRUNK AND CLAIMED HE SAW SOMETHING THAT DIDN'T HAPPEN. I HIGHLY DOUBT THAT A DESIGNER WHO CREATES CLOTHES WORN BY BROOKE SHIELDS IS WILL DO SOMETHING THAT STUPID I PUBLIC. KEIFFER IS SEEING THINGS FROM HIS ALCOHOL ADDICTION. WUT A DOUCHE BAG. ANOTHER CRIMINAL COMPLAINT ON TOP OF HIS DUI. NICCCE!!!! YEP HE'S THE KOOL JACK BAUER. NOTHING LIKE HIS DAD WHO HAS MANNERS AND CLASS.

3 hot chics & 1 pimpin gangsta, when it comes to manners, Kiefer is hands-down better than this dad. Kiefer signs autograph after autograph and is about the most polite guy in Hollywood. Kiefer, simply, is an alcoholic. That says nothing about his character.

Also, TMZ reports what witnesses said.

I agree number 20. He was being a drunk idiot and is trying to cover it up.

I am so proud of Kiefer for this. This guy sounded like a jerk and he tried to make this jerk be a man and apologize. He does not deserve to be in trouble for this, he deserves a medal as he was being a man. So few of them act this way at times.

Oh stop it, all of you.
The uncontroverted facts are that:
1) Kiefer suggested the designer at least apologize to the lady for causing her to fall ass over tea kettle
2) the designer did not say " good idea, there, thank you, good sir," but the fop, instead,in reply, pushed Kiefer like so
3) Kiefer head butted the designer in the proboscis in justifiable rejoinder
4) what the designer did or didn't do to Brooke is of no weight here, no matter what Brooke thinks; here what matters most is the designer assaulted Kiefer first and thereby impliedly consented to battery in the traditional sense
5) LA probation authorities justifiably should take no action regarding Kiefer's actions
6) I'm right and you know it
7) but have you been Rick-Rolled?

"knocked brooke over" ? as in, accident ? or attack ? bad reporting, TMZ. Keifer might have gone ballistic if he thought a woman had been attacked..so that much is understandable, { if she was attacked }. Wasn't it OBVIOUS to people if it was some attack or some bizarre accident ?
