US police were investigating a fashion designer’s claim that actor Kiefer Sutherland head-butted him at a New York nightclub.
Jack McCollough, of the Proenza Schouler fashion house, said the incident happened, reportedly at the club SubMercer in SoHo, and claimed he was cut on his face.
Mr McCollough claimed Sutherland, star of the 24 series, attacked him after an argument, according to a law enforcement official.
The official said detectives plan to question Sutherland and may question actress Brooke Shields as a witness. Nobody has been arrested.
Sutherland was released from jail last year after serving 48 days on a drunken driving charge.
