Kiefer Sutherland Goes All "Jack Bauer" on Women's Wear Designer

"Tell Me Where the New Summer Line Is. TELL ME WHERE THE NEW SUMMER LINE IS!"

The following took place between 2 a.m. and whenever he sobered up: Kiefer Sutherland, who portrays tough guy Jack Bauer on the hit Fox drama "24", allegedly headbutted fashion designer Jack McCollough outside a New York City nightclub earlier this week.

Sutherland originally claimed that he was coming to the aid of actress Brooke Shields, who McCollough had bumped into, or so Sutherland said. But that story became a little far-fetched, even by "24" plotline standards, after a representative for Shields denied that McCollough had done anything inappropriate, MSNBC reports.

According to MSNBC, McCollough told authorities that Sutherland "was drunk and obnoxious and wouldn't back down or be logical." Oh man, someone's practically begging to end up back at CTU with jumper cables duct-taped to his nipples.

Sutherland turned himself in to the NYPD on Thursday, and was arrested and charged with assault, Reuters reports. The arrest isn't likely to go over well in Los Angeles, where Sutherland is already on probation for a DUI conviction, and where "24" is set to start production on its eighth season at the end of this month.

Judging by this week's real-life preview, "24: Season 8" may find Jack Bauer trying to stop a rogue Chechen terrorist from acquiring weapons-grade capri pants in Milan.
