A lawyer for Kiefer Sutherland, 42, claimed May 11 that the 24 star was not to blame in the alleged head-butting of fashion designer Jack McCollough (inset), 30, at a Manhattan bar around 2 a.m. seven days earlier.

Authorities in L.A. have not yet decided whether he violated his probation for a DUI conviction.
