STITCHES IN TIME Sutherland's injury didn't delay ''24'''s production schedule

Kiefer Sutherland isn't just taking punishment on TV as ''24'''s much-abused Agent Jack Bauer. The actor was involved in a bar brawl earlier this week, his spokeswoman says. The Golden Globe winner ''was in an incident -- he was defending himself,'' his rep told the New York Post. ''He did get hurt and had six stitches done by his own doctor.''

Sutherland's injury forced the show to shoot around him until his face healed. He was back to work by Wednesday, and while there was ultimately no delay in completing the next episode (rest easy, time-conscious ''24'' fans), Sutherland apologized to the cast and crew for the production shuffle, saying he ''felt terrible,'' TV's ''Entertainment Tonight'' reports.
