NEW YORK, May 22 (UPI) -- Actor Kiefer Sutherland, who was arrested for allegedly hitting Jack McCollough in New York about two weeks ago, has apologized to the fashion designer.
E! News reported McCollough has subsequently accepted the "24" star's mea culpa.
"I am sorry about what happened that night and sincerely regret that Mr. McCollough was injured," Sutherland said in a joint statement with the designer.
"I appreciate Mr. Sutherland's statement and wish him well," McCollough responded.
Sutherland, who was charged with misdemeanor assault after the alleged incident, is due in a Manhattan court June 22 to answer the charge.
He is accused of head-butting McCollough after the two exchanged words at a party.
