Kiefer Sutherland, already on probation for a DUI, is in trouble again for allegedly head-butting designer Jack McCollough at a swanky nightclub in Soho on Tuesday. Sutherland channeled his inner two-year-old after McCollough bumped into Brooke Shields and didn’t apologize. This story would be cute if it was about small children, but it’s not. [NYDailyNews]Interestingly, this night-in-shining armor attitude is not uncommon among stars. Below, a few more celebs who have sallied forth to save the day.

|When baby-faced Miley Cyrus did a racy photo shoot for Vanity Fair, there was oodles o’ controversy.

We’ve all become victims of that.” [Celebritique] — Cry me a river Justin.|
