Kiefer Sutherland was charged today with a misdemeanor for driving under the influence. This is his second one as he’s on probation for a 2004 DUI charge.

He was charged with single counts of driving under the influence and driving with a blood-alcohol level of .08 or above, said city attorney spokesman Nick Velasquez. If convicted, he faces a maximum sentence of a year in jail and a minimum of four days, Velasquez said.

”We also charged him with a second DUI offense within 10 years, which we believe also violates the terms of his probation,” Velasquez added. If found guilty he could face an additional six months in jail.

He will be arraigned on Oct. 16 and was released on $25,000 bail.
