Kiefer Sutherland loves him some alcohol
And by "fun guy" I mean he's a self-destructive alcoholic with the liver of a 75-year-old merchant marine. Wait a minute, I thought this post was supposed to be fun? From the Chicago Sun Times:
Several friends of Kiefer Sutherland tell me the "24" star's recent heavy partying -- allegedly involving a good deal of drinking -- has them worried. The actor has been seen in several New York nightspots recently, appearing to be very "overserved."Oh yeah, another trip to rehab would be a great idea. After all, it worked so well the other four times. I'm beginning to think this whole Hollywood rehab business is just a scam. I mean, has it ever worked on anybody? Has anyone actually seen the inside of one of these places? I bet if you walked in, you'd see nothing but video games, trampolines, and ball pits.
"Kiefer needs to get his act together yet again," said a longtime pal, who added, "Another trip to rehab would be a very good idea."

Being a celebrity has its perks
On May 5, during an afterparty for the Costume Institute Gala in New York, Kiefer Sutherland headbutted designer Jack McCollough after he supposedly knocked over Brooke Shields. Yesterday, Alicia Maxey Greene, a spokeswoman for the Manhattan District Attorney, announced that he's getting away with it:
"We declined to prosecute after a full investigation. That included speaking to the complaining witness, who was quite uncooperative."This is probably a smart move for the Manhattan DA. You hate to waste resources on a case where there's only 250 witnesses. You really need video of the incident from at least three different angles and a sketch from one of those courtroom artists if you're gonna prosecute someone as famous as Kiefer. I think he's owed a huge apology and maybe a fruit basket or two for this whole inconvenience.
Sutherland, 42, is also off the hook with the L.A. City Attorney's office, which investigated the actor for a possible probation violation. Sutherland is currently serving a five-year probation term following a second DUI conviction in 2007.

Kiefer Sutherland may be in trouble with the law on both coasts for that headbutting incident last week in New York. The L.A. City Attorney has contacted the NYPD for information on the incident. From TMZ:
Kiefer is on probation for a DUI conviction in L.A. One of the conditions of probation -- he must obey all laws. The City Attorney could go back to the judge and ask that Kiefer's probation be revoked and that could potentially mean some serious jail time -- around 11 months max.What kind of bullshit probation is this? Kiefer got a DUI in California. He should be free to headbutt as many uppity fashion designers in New York as he wants. You know what country used to restrict their citizens like this? Nazi Germany. Really makes you think, doesn't it? . . . about what, I'm not exactly sure -- but definitely about something.
The City Attorney hasn't made a decision yet.
Kiefer Sutherland at the Met Costume Institue Gala in New York (5/4)
Kiefer Sutherland headbutted Jack McCollough Monday night after the designer allegedly knocked Brooke Shields over. The incident occurred during the after-party for the Costume Institute Gala in New York. McCollough was hit so hard, his nose broke. From TMZ:
According to one law enforcement source, "Brooke was definitely involved." As we reported, Kiefer and witnesses say McCullough pushed Brooke and Kiefer stepped in and demanded he apologize to her. Kiefer's peeps say Jack pushed Kiefer, and the actor responded with a headbutt.Perhaps the weirdest thing about this story (other than it centers around Brooke Shields - what is this, 1996?) is Brooke is denying that Jack ever pushed her down. In other words, Kiefer just walked up to this designer and headbutted him. OK, yeah, I can believe that. He deserved that headbutt. His fall line fucking sucked.
There are reports Kiefer was drunk at the time of the incident.
Law enforcement sources also tell us they have been in touch with FOX studios, asking for them to arrange a time when cops can interview Kiefer.
NOTE: You think when Kiefer gets drunk, he just does his 24 character all night long. "Hey bartender, I'd like a Jack & Coke . . . AND MAKE IT A DOUBLE!!! HURRY!!!"
Kiefer Sutherland in Manhattan (2/4)
Kiefer Sutherland was in rare form last week at Peter Dillon's bar in Manhattan, getting absolutely trashed and then picking a fight with another bar patron. Hey, at least he kept his pants on this time. An eyewitness told the National Enquirer:
"[Kiefer] initially was soft-spoken, mellow and pleasant. He was ordering Maker's Mark whiskey cocktails and was even posing for some pictures."Getting into a fight with Kiefer Sutherland is a "no-win" situation. If you win, congratulations, you just beat up a forty-something-year-old midget that weighs 75 pounds. And if you lose, congratulations, you just got your ass kicked by a forty-something-year-old midget that weighs 75 pounds. The best thing to do when confronted by an intoxicated Kiefer Sutherland: gently back away, apologize, and politely give him back his Lucky Charms.
But it wasn't long before Kiefer, who has admitted to having a drinking problem, ran into trouble. According to the eyewitness, Kiefer exploded after another patron near the pool tables said something to the actor - and the two ended up in a pushing and shoving match.
"Pals had to hold Kiefer back from decking the guy," continued the eyewitness. "After the incident, Kiefer appeared disheveled and drunk and had to be helped out. He tripped twice on his way out the door, but was apologizing for his actions." (Source)
