NEW YORK (AP) -- Kiefer Sutherland has been charged with assault for allegedly head-butting a fashion designer at a Manhattan nightclub. New York police said the charges were filed after Sutherland spoke to investigators at a police station in lower Manhattan on Thursday.
The designer, Jack McCollough, claims Sutherland attacked him after an argument, leaving him with a cut on his face.
It's unclear whether the charges will affect his probation status for a drunken-driving conviction in Los Angeles that sent him to jail for 48 days last year.
