D.A. Rejects Sutherland Headbutt Case

7/21/2009 6:26 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

 Kiefer Sutherland Headbutt Case Kiefer Sutherland is officially off the hook for that whole headbutting incident in NYC back in May ... because it amounted to a bunch of nothing.

The Manhattan D.A. has just rejected the case against the "24" star and we're told it's all because officials determined it was a petty matter that did not rise to the level of criminal conduct.

And it gets even better for Sutherland -- we've learned the L.A. City Attorney is equally unimpressed with the incident and will not try and violate Kiefer's probation from a prior DUI conviction.

Just like Jack Bauer, Kiefer got off virtually unscathed.

think first    

To 24 & 26: I completely agree with the court's decision on this one. However, I think both of you might want to check a dictionary. I don't think K*ie*fer was practicing chauvinism, but rather chivalry. Although his approach may have been less than ideal, I believe his intentions were honorable.

He's a falling down sloppy pissy drunk. Drunks headbutt people when they sip too much sauce.

If his name was Keifer Jones, he'd have sat in a jail cell for a few days, stood in front of a judge, placed on probation, paid a fine and taking mandatory anger management classes right now. It's as simple as that.

Jack Bauer or no Jack Bauer, he's a raging red-nosed alcoholic.

Great News! Kiefer himself and the designer admit that it was an unfortunate inident. If the designer doesn't think it was severe enough incident to pursue than that's it. Who cares if he took a payment or not.

First, the crybaby designer whines to everyone who will listen about the terrible violent crime that has been perpetruated against him. Then within a few days, his injury magically transforms from a tiny scratch to a nose broken in 3 places. A few weeks later, crybaby and Kiefer make nicey-nice and settle their differences. Now, the charges are dropped in part because the complaining witness (crybaby) is being uncooperative. Looks to me like the little crybaby was after money all along and he
got it. I would love to know how much Kiefer had to fork over to make the crybaby's boo-boo feel better.
