Brooke Shields Defends Kiefer Sutherland, Lawyer Says Actor Not At Fault

Brooke Shields' lawyer has issued a statement about her involvement in an incident which led to Kiefer Sutherland being charged for head-butting Jack McCollough.

"A number of statements have been attributed to Ms. Shields in the media that are neither true nor authorized," says Gerald Lefcourt. "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."

So the statement more or less confirms Kiefer's version of events which is interesting since McCollough claimed it was an "unprovoked assault."

The '24' actor was charged with third-degree assault for the headbutt, which left the designer with a broken nose.

Sutherland's attorney Michael C. Miller says he is confident that his client will be cleared of the charge: "We are confident that the investigation being conducted by 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. However, we are troubled by the untruthful and self-serving information circulating regarding him."

Kiefer is to be arraigned June 22 at Manhattan Criminal Court.
