Kiefer Sutherland might be torturing himself after LA police charged the 24 star with driving under the influence early this morning. The actor was pulled over around 1:30am after making an illegal U-turn, the LA Times reports, and failed field sobriety and Breathalyzer tests.

Sutherland, 40, was released around 4am after posting $25,000 bail. He has an Oct. 16 court date to answer the misdemeanor charges. Sutherland faces a minimum of 5 days in jail if convicted, E! Online reports, because this is his second charge. He won a best actor Emmy last year for his role on 24, which returns in January. (More Kiefer Sutherland stories.)
