Kiefer Sutherland is charged with assault

Tbd-kiefersutherland050809 Kiefer Sutherland has officially been charged with assault for allegedly head-butting fashion designer Jack McCollough at Monday's Met Gala in New York, the AP reports. It just goes to show that Jack Bauer will stop at nothing to see justice done.

New York police said the charges were filed after Kiefer talked to cops at a Manhattan police station on Thursday. Sutherland arrived with lawyers but didn't talk to reporters, the AP says.

As the story goes, Sutherland was chatting with Brooke Shields when McCollough may or may not have bumped into the actress, gossipy sources told the New York tabloids. Kiefer supposedly demanded an apology for Brooke, then bashed McCollough, allegedly cutting the designer's nose.

Whether this affects the terms of his probation after release from jail after serving 48 days for a DUI wasn't immediately clear.
