Mccollough Required Surgery After Sutherland's Alleged Assault
Fashion designer JACK MCCOLLOUGH required surgery to mend his broken nose after actor KIEFER SUTHERLAND allegedly headbutted him at a New York fashion party.
The 24 star stands accused of third-degree assault after allegedly headbutting Proenza Schouler designer MCCollough at a Met Costume Institute Gala afterparty on Tuesday (05May09) night.
Sutherland surrendered himself to police at the NYPD First Precinct on Thursday afternoon (07May09) and was officially arrested and charged with the misdemeanour.
MCCollough was snapped with red scratches on his face after the incident; but the designer insists his injuries were far worse than they appear.
His spokesperson tells People.com, "Mr. MCCollough suffered a broken nose in three places as a result of the assault. He received medical treatment last night after consulting with physicians... (he) had to have his nose reset. It's painful and it felt horrible."
Sutherland, who is currently under a probation order in Los Angeles relating to a 2007 conviction for driving under the influence (DUI), faces a $1,000 (£670) fee and up to a year in jail if convicted of the third-degree assault charge.
His arraignment is scheduled for 22 June (09) at Manhattan Criminal Court.
