Kiefer Sutherland headbutts designer Jack McCollough over bumping Brooke Shields

Kiefer Sutherland's Jack Bauer may be dying of mad cow on 24, but there's plenty of fight left in the real deal: He allegedly headbutted a fashion designer after having a few too many drinks.

Tbd-kiefersutherland050709 Kiefer was talking to Brooke Shields at a Met Gala after-party early Tuesday morning when Jack McCollough apparently bumped into her. The 42-year-old actor demanded McCollough apologize, but rumor has it Kiefer gets a little wild-eyed when he's drinking.

"Sutherland was really drunk," a source tells the New York Post. "They started arguing and then he just head-butted him."

Brooke's people told TMZ that McCollough "did nothing inappropriate. It's not clear what caused Kiefer to do what he did."

McCollough reportedly suffered a cut on his nose.

"All we can say at this point is that he was the victim of a vicious, violent, unprovoked assault and that the matter is in the hands of the authorities," his rep told People.

Police are investigating the matter, but we'd think Kiefer would keep his nose clean after spending time in jail for a DUI last year.
