    Well I hope he seeks the help he needs to conquer this. Its not a first time for him. Getting up there in age Kiefer….you should be taking care of yourself and not abusing your body. At least you thought of the show and how it will affect those people and took your lumps. I see that Michelle girl got 180 days? Well, I hope they go by example from now on and quit treating you celebrities like your untouchable because that is not right.

    why don’t these dumbasses have drivers?

    I love driving, but I would save it for the daytime and have some limo for the party evenings

    Fed up with these drunk drivers who put others at risk. 0 Tolerance required here folks Kiefer should not be allowed to drive again…end of report.

    in other magazine articles he has stated that he would not want his daughter in the entertainment business. You would think it would be equally if not more important to be the kind of father his daughter could respect. What advice will he give her about drinking and driving. He is concerned about the pressures and rejections his daughter will face in this business what about the shame she must feel from her father’s drunken rowdy behaviour.

    Stick to getting hammered and jumping into hotel Christmas trees, Keifer!! At least the only person you will hurt that way is yourself!

    When will they ever learn!!! He needs to go to jail and all the others that continue to do this.

    Everyone needs to calm down. He spent multiple years in a Chinese Prison I’m pretty sure he can handle this one. Plus, he’s prolly gonna break out anyway, c’mon dudes, its Jack Baur we’re talkin about here.

    click my name!!! 😀

    Jack got off the track and got whack.
    It’s not cool to be convicted of DUI, man.
    it’s not like you can’t afford a driver.
    Smarten up, Kiefer . You don’t want to be lumped up in the same group as Lindsay, Britney and Paris, do you ??

    I think the only lesson that will be learned by these spoiled hollywood celebrities is when one of them dies behind the wheel of a car while under the influence of alcohol. They somehow think because they are rich, and everyone bows to them, that they are then above the law. Anyone of them who stands before a judge should have their ass fried. MADD has worked tirelessly to try and stop people like this who just simply don’t get it. You are rich, hire a driver! Shame on you Keifer and you deserve what you got, but in my opinion, your license should be suspended for life and that of anybody else who does this, celebrity or average joe. It is entirely inexcusable and until somebody dies, it will never change because people just don’t care or just don’t learn.

    Ride the Christmas tree, man!!!!

    “24 star Kiefer Sutherland is to serve 48 days in jail for drunk driving.”

    Drunk seems to be the norm for these assholes. When can we stop hearing their excuses for this anti-social behaviour?
