We thought the time he wrestled that Christmas Tree to the ground in a hotel lobby was embarrassing but now Kiefer Sutherland seems to have been swindled in a grand cow trading scheme.
Just because the “Young Guns” star knows how to win a rodeo (he was on the circuit in the late ‘90s and came out on top in events in Phoenix and Albuquerque), doesn’t mean he knows the ropes when it comes to the cattle business.
The “24” actor might have utilized some of Jack Bauer’s investigative skills and done a background check on Michael Wayne Carr. Seems Carr allegedly hooked Kiefer in on a deal to buy steers south of the border and sell them in the States for a profit.
Kiefer allegedly forked over $869,000, but it seems that Carr never bought the cattle. Now Carr is facing 12 felony charges and Sutherland will have to wait until his re-scheduled arraignment on February 8.
Carr’s possible sentence for scamming a famous movie star: 18 years in prison.
Kiefer’s life lesson: priceless.
