'24' actor Kiefer Sutherland reportedly headbutted fashion designer Jack McCollough at a New York party, after becoming angry that Jack had knocked over actress Brooke Shields
Kiefer Sutherland has allegedly headbutted a fashion designer and broken his nose.
The '24' star reportedly got into an altercation with Proenza Schouler designer Jack McCollough at an after-party for New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute Gala at nightspot SubMercer on Monday night (04.05.09).
It has been claimed Kiefer approached Jack after seeing him knock actress Brooke Shields to the ground. Kiefer reportedly asked Jack to apologise, prompting the designer to push Kiefer. It is then alleged Kiefer headbutted Jack.
However, Brooke's representative has denied she was involved in the incident.
The spokesperson told website TMZ.com: "Nothing happened to her. Jack did nothing inappropriate. It's not clear what caused Kiefer to do what he did. Jack did absolutely nothing to her."
Police are currently investigating the incident, and Brooke will reportedly be interviewed by officers today (06.05.09).
Following the incident, Jack was taken to hospital where he is still receiving treatment.
Kiefer, 42, was jailed for 48 days in 2007 after pleading no contest to driving under the influence (DUI).
He is still on probation in Los Angeles following the incident.
