According to news reports, Kiefer Sutherland was arrested for DUI overnight. Sutherland is the star of the hit show 24, where he plays beleaguered CTU agent Jack Bauer who tries to keep the US safe from all manner of threat - foreign, domestic and mole.
TMZ has learned that "24" star Kiefer Sutherland was busted on suspicion of DUI in West Hollywood last night, after allegedly blowing more than twice the legal limit of .08. This is the actor's second DUI in the past five years -- he was arrested in 2004. By California law, if he's convicted, he must serve a mandatory minimum of five days in jail.He was pulled over after being spotted making an illegal u-turn. He was able to post $25,000 bail and will go before a judge on October 16.
It looks like he's got himself a jail sentence to deal with, which will come well before the season premiere of 24 in January 2008.
