Kiefer Sutherland’s attorney released this statement on behalf of the actor regarding his recent head-butting legal woes:
We are troubled by the untruthful and self-serving information circulating regarding Kiefer Sutherland and events of last Monday evening. 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. Out of respect for this law enforcement process, Kiefer Sutherland will not be making any comment.
Parties close to Sutherland and Fox continue to say they don’t expect fallout from the assault charge to disrupt the actor’s schedule, which this month includes attending Fox’s upfront presentation to advertisers, appearing with his band on Jimmy Fallon and resuming production on 24.
Also, here’s a statement by Brooke Shields, which got lost in the media din last week, denying a widely circulated media report in which she seemingly contradicted Sutherland:
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. 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.
