Kiefer Sutherland reported to a lower Manhattan police station
Actor Kiefer Sutherland has been charged with assault after he allegedly head-butted a fashion designer at a nightclub in Manhattan, New York.
He turned himself in to police on Thursday after claims he attacked Jack McCollough at SubMercer in the early hours of Tuesday morning.
The actor, 42, who stars in US TV drama 24, will face a minor assault charge in court on 22 June.
He is currently on probation over a conviction for drink-driving.
The alleged assault took place at a party following Monday night's Met Costume Gala, attended by A-list stars including Madonna, Justin Timberlake, Kate Moss and Victoria Beckham.
Mr McCollough, who works for the Proenza Schouler fashion house, says he was head-butted after an argument with Sutherland.
US reports have suggested Sutherland confronted Mr McCollough after he bumped into actress Brooke Shields.

Police have said they might question Shields over the alleged attack.
Mr McCullough says he was left with a cut nose.
In January 2008, Sutherland left jail in California after serving a 48-day sentence for drink-driving.
He was jailed after pleading guilty to being over the legal alcohol limit after leaving a party.
As well as being jailed, he was put on five years' probation.
The Canadian actor, who rose to fame in films including 1987 teenage vampire movie The Lost Boys, is best known for his role as counter-terrorism agent Jack Bauer in 24.
He also starred in Flatliners, with ex-fiancee Julia Roberts, and legal drama A Few Good Men.
