Kiefer Sutherland Snaps

Even when off the set of 24, Kiefer Sutherland is one intense individual who won’t hesitate to leap to the rescue—even when the rescue is unwanted, apparently. At a late night star-studded party after the Costume Institute gala Monday evening, a reportedly intoxicated Sutherland was chatting up old co-star Brooke Shields at the bar when Proenza Schouler designer Jack McCollough bumped into her. Sutherland took exception to this—and in true Bauer fashion sought an apology by any means necessary. The confrontation, fueled by booze and testosterone, escalated, and Sutherland “‘pulled this stupid wrestling move like a teenager,’ then slammed McCollough in the face,” the New York Daily News reports. Shields, it seems, is taking McCullough’s side, saying Sutherland overreacted. The NYPD is on the case and will likely speak to Sutherland soon.
