Kiefer Sutherland may have a drinking problem

*kiefer_sutherland_thumb2.jpgKiefer Sutherland shocked staffers at the Ye Rustic Inn in Los Feliz, Calif., the other morning when he walked up to the bar around 9 a.m. demanding to start a tab. Sutherland looked “rail-thin” when he entered the tiny dive bar with a group of rowdy pals and ordered a round of drinks. According to witnesses, when presented with the bill, Sutherland claimed his wallet was “indisposed” – “It’s been stolen! I promise I’ll come back and pay.” At that point, things got weird.

“He started to go into a series of karate kicks in the middle of the floor while the bartender, waitress and several customers looked on,” a source reports. Thankfully, a star-struck fan agreed to buy him several J&B’s on the rocks. After devouring a plate of chicken wings and littering the floor with bones, the star left without tipping.

Kiefer Sutherland is starting to become my personal hero. He’s one of the few people who’s actually more entertaining when they’re not on television – whether it’s drunken karate kicks or attacking Christmas trees. Hell, he should just start another show, something called 24 beers. His mission would be to save Kiefer from sobriety. It’d basically just be him sitting at a bar drinking one beer per hour till he attacks the dartboard. Emmys all the way.
