Keifer Sutherland Is Due To Surrender


Kiefer Sutherland is due to surrender to police in Lower Manhattan today for minor assault charge after an alleged scuffle in New York. Authorities in Los Angeles may come down even harder on him, though, as Sutherland is currently serving a five-year probation term in Los Angeles for his second DUI conviction and may have violated those terms, which clearly state the actor must “obey all laws.”

“Our office intends to contact the NYPD and New York prosecutors to review the incident and determine whether Mr. Sutherland violated probation,” stated L.A. City Attorney spokesman Frank Mateljan.

“If Sutherland’s found in violation of probation for battery, and if he was intoxicated at the time, he could very well be sentenced to another 48 days or more,” says Steve Sitkoff, an L.A. criminal defense attorney not involved with the case.

Sutherland, who allegedly headbutted a fashion designer at a party early Tuesday, will reportedly surrender to New York authorities to face a third-degree assault charge. A probation violation could mean a return to jail. Sutherland previously spent 48 days in jail on the conviction.
