Jack Bauer pleads no contest to fourth Dui-y….sentenced to jail!

Kiefer Sutherland pleaded no contest to driving with a blood alcohol level of twice the legal limit today, and he was sentenced to 48 days in custody.  Kiefer will be serving the bulk of his sentence while “24” is on holiday, so production will not have to be shut down.

A rep for Twentieth Century Fox and the FOX Broadcasting Group issued this statement:

“Today our friend Kiefer Sutherland resolved his criminal case at the earliest opportunity. Kiefer made clear to us at the time of his arrest that his first concern was the welfare of those he worked with and that he intended to do whatever was necessary to prevent shutting down the show because of his situation. He told us that even if he had to sacrifice more time in custody in order to protect the show and the jobs of those who work with him, he would do so. From what occurred today, it is evident he is a man of his word. We wish him well and look forward to a long relationship with him.”

Kiefer will do 18 days for the probation violation, surrendering December 21. He will serve an additional 30 days for the current DUI and must complete that sentence by July 1.

Hopefully Bauer will get the help he needs for his very well documented  drinking problem.

I’ve found some hilarious drunken Kiefer incidents on the internet, namely where he tackles a christmas tree at his holiday party AND when he ends up at a bar at 9 am doing karate kicks.  

( Dude: Kiefer, you’re a pirate, man. Kiefer: That would explain everything…. [tackle] )

I have to admit, major addictions and run-ins with the law aside, I LOVE THIS GUY!
