Kiefer Sutherland Kiefer Sutherland

Kiefer Sutherland and Jack McCollough, a designer who accused the 24 star of breaking his nose, have resolved their differences, laying the foundation for a charge to be dropped, the Associated Press reports.

Sutherland's reps told the AP that he is sorry about the incident, and regrets that McCullough was injured. McCollough wished the actor well, according to the report.

On May 7, Sutherland turned himself in and was charged with third-degree assault after a dispute involving the designer and Brooke Shields at an after-party for the Met's Costume Institute Gala in New York. Witnesses had said Sutherland head-butted McCollough.

Several days later, Sutherland's attorney said that the actor was "neither the instigator nor a wrongdoer" in the incident.

Sutherland is due in court June 22.
