I have a hard time accepting that a quarter-inch cut (this) after a slight altercation requires police action, but apparently it does, because – according to a story broken by the Daily News – Kiefer Sutherland will surrender to prosecutors, maybe as early as today, to face a minor assault charge for head-butting designer Jack McCollough Monday night in New York City.
Sutherland will be charged with third-degree assault (and) issued a desk appearance ticket for the misdemeanor – meaning he won’t be jailed and will be free to travel before he’s arraigned.
A friend (says) Sutherland felt bad about the bizarre display.
“Kiefer is sorry it happened. Absolutely. It’s terribly regrettable,” the friend said.
Still, they insisted Sutherland lashed out because McCollough bumped into actress Brooke Shields and didn’t apologize.
Sutherland’s lawyers are expected to work out a cash settlement with McCollough.
Jesus Christ, really? How about instead of Kiefer surrendering to the police, McCollough surrender to a karate class and learn how to fight. Kiefer barely touched him. I’ve done worse things than this to people I like. If a quarter inch cut = third degree assault, I don’t even wanna know what staple-gunning a dudes nuts would be considered. Treason?
