Keifer Sutherland has directed three films
Actor Kiefer Sutherland has been arrested for drink-driving after being stopped by police in Los Angeles.

The 24 star was held by police after making an illegal U-turn and was found to be over the legal alcohol limit after a breath test.

The 40-year-old was released on bail of $25,000 (12,400) in the early hours of Tuesday morning and is scheduled to appear in court on 16 October.

Sutherland won an Emmy award last year for his role in real-time drama 24.

The show was also named best drama at the awards ceremony in 2006.

The actor plays anti-terrorist officer Jack Bauer in the series, which is due to return to US screens in January for its seventh season.

There are also plans to shoot a big screen version of the high-octane drama.
