Jack Bauer jailed for drunk driving

BauerKiefer Sutherland, star of the hit television series "24," was formally sentenced on Wednesday to 48 days in jail for drunken driving, and his lawyer said the actor would begin doing time immediately.

Sutherland will serve the 48 days consecutively rather than in two separate stints as had been previously planned in order to prevent a conflict with the production schedule of the Fox network show.

Fox announced last month it was suspending production on the series due to the screenwriters' strike, so there was no longer any need for Sutherland to break up his jail term into two parts.

We know Jack is only there because he wants to be.

WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON!?! america is so out of control that celebrities now have the option of splitting up or futuring jail sentences because they might interfere with some pointless sitcom. as much as i enjoy all of our luxuries sometimes i think we need a war on american soil just to get ourselves back to reality.

War on American soil? That's a bit extreme.

I'm surprised that money didn't buy an acquittal. I quess it bought a jail sentence that fits his schedule.

Great show by the way.
