At least he wasn’t driving this time.

“24” star Kiefer Sutherland knocked back so many drinks during a recent dinner at Lure in SoHo that he practically had to be carried out of the restaurant, a spy told us.

The 43-year-old actor, who has been arrested for drunken driving and is no stranger to public intoxication, “was having a tough time holding himself up and wasn’t making much sense, and was slurring his speech,” our witness said.

"The staff helped him stand upright,” the witness said.

The restaurant’s management declined to comment, and messages left with representatives for Sutherland were not immediately returned.

Sutherland’s dining partner, surprisingly, was rocker Jon Bon Jovi, who kept his alcohol intake under control and posed for pics with fans before leaving the restaurant to smoke a few cigarettes.
