Kiefer Sutherland Is Off the Hook for Headbutting Case

Kiefer Sutherland is officially off the hook for attacking Proenza Schouler designer Jack McCollough during a party in New York back in May.

During what was called a 'misunderstanding', Kiefer head-butted Jack after he was seen talking to Kiefer's pal Brooke Shields. He was charged with third degree assault, but the case has been dropped.

Manhattan District Attorney (D.A.) spokeswoman Alicia Maxey Greene confirmed: “We declined to prosecute after a full investigation. And that included speaking to the complaining witness who was quite uncooperative… Therefore, the D.A. declined to prosecute."

Kiefer was on probation at the time of the attack due to a previous DUI but the Los Angeles City Attorney’s office also cleared him of those charges.

Spokesman Frank Mateljan said: “Based on the evidence and information received from New York officials, as well as our own independent review of the evidence, we will not be seeking a violation of Sutherland's probation.”

Kiefer ended up issuing a public apology to Jack and Jack accepted. All is well in the world again. Must be nice to be a celebrity, right?
