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.
