The decision by the Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office came after the New York District Attorney declined to pursue criminal charges against the star of popular U.S. television show 24, the official said.

In May, fashion designer Jack McCollough told police Sutherland had headbutted him at a hotel bar in the Soho area of New York.

Sutherland surrendered to police and was released while authorities investigated.
