Frequently Drunken Kiefer Sutherland gets NYC assault charge dropped

TV Arts

Mr
NEW YORK – Kiefer Sutherland's legal troubles for allegedly head-
butting a fashion designer in a New York City nightclub are over.

The Manhattan district attorney's spokeswoman said Tuesday that
misdemeanor assault charges against the actor are being dropped
because the alleged victim wouldn't cooperate with prosecutors.

The star of the Fox TV show "24" was charged in May after designer
Jack McCollough said Sutherland head-butted him and broke his nose in
a Manhattan nightclub.

Sutherland and McCollough issued a joint statement a few weeks later
saying they had resolved their differences. Sutherland apologized to
McCollough in the statement.

Sutherland's attorneys declined to comment Tuesday.
