Sutherland was arrested for allegedly driving under the influence in Los Angeles early Tuesday morning.
Best-known for playing Jack Bauer on the Fox drama series, "24," Sutherland was stopped after making an illegal U-turn and arrested on suspicion of DUI after a Breathalyzer test showed his blood alcohol level was twice the legal limit of 0.08 percent, police said.
Sutherland was released on $25,000 bail.
However, in light of his most recent arrest, prosecutors are seeking to revoke his probation in a November 2004 DUI conviction.
The actor faces up to one year in county jail and a $1,000 fine if convicted, plus an additional six months if a judge deems he violated probation. This was Sutherland's fourth DUI-related arrest since 1989.
His arraignment is scheduled for Oct. 16.
A spokesman for the actor wasn't immediately available for comment, People.com said.
