Kiefer Sutherland’s lawyer: ‘No wrongdoing’

Kiefer Sutherland’s attorney has issued a statement asserting Kiefer’s innocence in the alleged headbutting of fashion designer Jack McCollough last week. People reports

“We are troubled by the untruthful and self-serving information circulating regarding Kiefer Sutherland and events of last Monday evening,” lawyer Michael C. Miller said. “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.”

In a bizarre twist, and almost simultaneously with Kiefer’s statement, Brooke Shields is now backing his story and basically claiming her reps didn’t know what the hell they were talking about:

In a statement released Monday on behalf of Shields, her attorney Gerald Lefcourt, said, “A number of statements have been attributed to Ms. Shields in the media that are neither true nor authorized. These statements were obviously made by those who were not in attendance at the party and constitute their version of events.”
As for what happened at the party, the statement says, “While at the party she was bumped into by Jack McCollough and Kiefer Sutherland became concerned. Kiefer has always been a gentleman in her company. Both Jack and Kiefer are friends of Ms. Shields and she regrets this unfortunate situation.”

Obviously what’s happening here is a massive government conspiracy. Ten bucks says there was a bomb in Jack McCollough’s nose, and only Kiefer Sutherland’s head full of scotch could stop it. Which is exactly why I drive drunk everywhere; I love America.
