LAWFUEL – The Legal Newswire – Kiefer Sutherland was arrested for investigation of misdemeanor drunken driving early Tuesday while still on probation from a similar 2004 conviction.
Sutherland, 40, failed a field sobriety test after he was stopped for making an illegal U-turn in West Los Angeles shortly after 1 a.m., police Officer Kevin Maiberger said.
Sutherland tested over the state’s legal blood alcohol limit of .08 percent, Officer Karen Smith said. Police declined to reveal the level.
He was booked for investigation of driving under the influence of alcohol and spent about three hours in jail before he posted $25,000 bail and was released.
Sutherland was scheduled to appear in court Oct. 16, Maiberger said.
