Sometimes life gives you headline lemons and sometimes in 2009 those same headlines shit gold: “Report: Kiefer Sutherland Headbutts Man While Defending Brooke Shields”.
Assuming, of course, the man was also 4’10”. Either that or Kiefer was giving a flying headbutt off a barstool. Nothing more to see, move about your day.
Ha, turns out the guy he headbutted was a women’s fashion designer.
New York’s Daily News reports that Sutherland, 42, was talking to Brooke Shields at a Met Gala after-party when Jack McCollough accidentally bumped into the actress. Sutherland then demanded the designer apologize and when he didn’t, well Sutherland put on his tough guy britches.
“Sutherland was really drunk,” another witness tells the New York Post. “They started arguing and then he just head-butted him.”
McCollough’s injuries remain unknown, but TMZ reports he suffered lacerations on his nose.
The only thing missing from this story is Julia Roberts and Lyle Lovett on the double date, with Corey Haim and Corey Feldman doing blow off some hooker’s backside in the bar’s corner.
