Kiefer Sutherland Arrested for DUI Early Morning Tuesday in West Los Angeles

Kiefer Sutherland, 40, was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving Tuesday in West Los Angeles.

Sutherland, son of actor Donald Sutherland, was arrested early Tuesday. Police stopped Sutherland at about 1:10 a.m. in West Los Angeles after he allegedly made an illegal U-turn.

A breath test found him to be over the legal blood-alcohol limit, and he was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence, and then released on $25,000 bail. He is due to appear in court on October 16.

The DUI arrest Tuesday is “24” star Kiefer Sutherland’s fourth traffic-related arrest.
Kiefer Sutherland plead guilty in 1989 and 1993 to reckless driving charges, and in 2004 to DUI with a blood alcohol level over .08 — the legal limit in California.  In the 1989 case, Sutherland was charged with carrying a concealed weapon in a vehicle and carrying a loaded firearm in a public place, but both charges were dismissed.
