Jack McCollough claimed the actor attacked him for no reason at the Met Gala in New York on May 5; Sutherland maintained he accosted the designer after he barged past Brooke Shields. The actress has since backed up the TV star's story, calling the incident "unfortunate."
McCollough was hospitalized with a broken nose after the alleged encounter.
In a recent TV interview, Sutherland admitted he "regretted" the incident.
Details of the settlement between Sutherland and McCollough were not available as WENN went to press.
