Rather ironic, don"t you think?
Kiefer Sutherland plead no contest to DUI yesterday and will reportedly be sentenced to 48 days for drinking, then getting behind the wheel of a car and attempting to kill people…not once, BUT TWICE.
Kiefer was previously charged in 2004 and was on probation last month when arrested again for the same offence. His sentence therefore covers both the DUI and the probation violation and he is to surrender on December 21st which incidentally totally fits in to his employment schedule. How convenient.
Upon resolution of the case, Fox (which airs 24) released this statement:
"Today our friend Kiefer Sutherland resolved his criminal case at the earliest opportunity. Kiefer made clear to us at the time of his arrest that his first concern was the welfare of those he worked with and that he intended to do whatever was necessary to prevent shutting down the show because of his situation. He told us that even if he had to sacrifice more time in custody in order to protect the show and the jobs of those who work with him, he would do so. From what occurred today, it is evident he is a man of his word. We wish him well and look forward to a long relationship with him."
Dude has a drinking problem and routinely drives drunk and their biggest concern is production schedules? Love Hollywood values.
