Kiefer Sutherland says a song on his new album Bloor Street was inspired by his time in jail

Kiefer Sutherland has revealed that he was so ‘bothered and embarassed’ by his time in prison that he penned a song about his experience.

The actor, 55, is set to release his third studio album Bloor Street on January 21, and  has included a song titled County Jail Gate, after serving 48 days behind bars for drink-driving in 2007.

Kiefer added that he wants the song to warn against ‘fighting that person’ and to simply ‘walk away,’ and admits he wasn’t ‘behaving responsibly’ when he was arrested.

‘I’m certainly not singing a song about how cool it is to go to jail. It’s really simple — you don’t need to fight that person, just walk away.

‘The part that bothered me most was that I wasn’t behaving responsibly, and I’m a father. I was really cross with myself about that the most. I’m just glad I made it through.

‘So yes, it’s a song saying don’t do this or you’re gonna feel like an absolute moron. It’s my story. Guilty as charged.’

In 1989, Kiefer was also arrested for drink driving and carrying a concealed loaded weapon and again faced DUI charges in 1993.
