And here we thought Jack Bauer was untouchable. And not stupid.
After the summer of useless socialites being arrested and occasionally put behind bars for their asinine traffic offenses, Kiefer Sutherland is proving that celebrities can be pulled over and incarcerated with equal opportunity.
According to TMZ, Sutherland was arrested on suspicion of DUI Monday night in West Hollywood. This is the second DUI in five years for Sutherland meaning that if convicted, he will serve a mandatory five days in jail.
Kiefer Sutherland was pulled over around 1:35 a.m., making an illegal U-turn. When tested for alcohol, he allegedly blew twice the legal driving limit of .08.
Police arrested the man behind the invincible Jack Bauer for misdemeanor DUI, booked him at 4:09 a.m. and released him at 5:42 a.m. on $25,000 bail.
Prior to being arrested, Sutherland attended the FOX Fall Eco-Casino party at Area nightclub in West Hollywood. Us Weekly spotted the actor drinking dark beer and smoking heavily while holding court with FOX executives.
Kiefer Sutherland is scheduled to appear in court on October 16. Hopefully on the same day as Britney Spears, so as to take the attention off him.
