Kiefer Sutherland was put in a headlock and thrown out of a London strip club shirtless.
The 24 actor was dragged out of famous nightspot Stringfellows – which is owned by Peter Stringfellow and boasts "tableside dancing, lap dancing and hundreds of beautiful girls" – by security guards after allegedly "kicking off" during an evening of drinking with friends.
Discussing his alcohol-fuelled behaviour, a source told The Sun newspaper: "He went bananas, shouting nonsense and dancing before kicking off when asked to leave."
The 43-year-old actor was driven to the club at 2am on Thursday morning after enjoying wine with a friend at The Covent Garden Hotel.
After moving on from the hotel, Sutherland was driven to the venue and at around 3.35am the TV hunk, described as "absolutely screamingly paralytic" by onlookers, was wrestled out the building topless by two security men – who spent a further 10 minutes trying to get him into his waiting car.
Around 15 minutes later Sutherland was photographed giggling as he fell out of the vehicle outside the hotel while wearing just a scarf and blue hooded jacket.
This is not the first time the actor has caused trouble after a night of drinking.
In May last year he surrendered himself to police after head-butting fashion designer Jack McCollough following a celebrity charity evening.
He was also arrested in September 2007 for drink driving, for which he was sentenced to spend 48 days in prison.
