Kiefer Sutherland has been charged with assault for allegedly head butting a fashion designer at a Manhattan nightclub.
New York police said the charges were filed after Sutherland spoke to investigators at a police station in lower Manhattan on Thursday.
The star of Fox television's "24" reported to the precinct house in a Lincoln Town Car alongside his lawyers, but he did not speak to reporters.
The designer, Jack McCollough, claims Sutherland attacked him after an argument, leaving him with a cut on his face.
It's unclear whether the charges will affect his probation status for a drunken-driving conviction in Los Angeles that sent him to jail for 48 days last year.
