A week after Kiefer Sutherland allegedly headbutted designer Jack McCullough at a Met Costume Institute Benefit after party, and days after he turned himself in to the NYPD, his lawyer has released a statement on his behalf.
"We are troubled by the untruthful and self-serving information circulating regarding Kiefer Sutherland and events of last Monday evening," reads the statement from Michael C. Miller, from the law firm of Steptoe & Johnson." We are confident, however, that the investigation being conducted by the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office and the NYPD will confirm that Kiefer Sutherland was neither the instigator nor a wrongdoer in this incident. Out of respect for this law enforcement process, Kiefer Sutherland will not be making any comment."
Kiefer was charged last week with one count of misdemeanor assault and was issued an appearance citation.
