Keifer Sutherland, star of The Lost Boys and Flatliners, has turned himself in yesterday to police in the Soho district of Manhattan over charges of assault against fashion designerJack McCollough.
It has been reported since Monday by several news outlets that Sutherland headbutted McCollough at an after party following a costume gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Sutherland is currently serving a five year probation for a 2007 drunk driving charge. If found guilty on assault charges, the consequences could be legally grave, as the probation requires Sutherland to “obey all laws”.
Neither the Manhattan District Attorney’s office or Sutherland’s representative have made a statement regarding the charges at this time. It is unclear whether Sutherland has sought criminal defense representation yet.
On Easter Sunday, Marty York – a child actor who may be best known as Yeah-Yeah in The Sandlot – was arrested after an argument with his girlfriend during which he allegedly hit her.
York has now been charged with one felony county of domestic battery. If convicted, York could get up to five years in prison and fines for thousands of dollars.
Earlier this week Tyra Banks hit the stand during a court case involving a misdemeanor stalking and harassment count against Brady Green, who is noted as being an “aggressive” fan, and allegedly threatened to kill one of Banks’ employees for not giving him tickets to her show.
Green was convicted by a NYC judge yesterday on counts of stalking, harassment, criminal trespass and attempted aggravated harassment. While he could spend up to 90 days in jail come sentencing in June, it appears that his current restraining order has been extended, and as long as he does not violate the order he will not serve time.
