The actor was arrested after being accused of assault on a female bus driver.
According to TMZ, Fox was arrested by police Saturday night in Cleveland , Ohio . He was accused of hitting a woman who was driving a party bus for a private party which he reportedly attempted to invade.
When the driver of the vehicle, Heather Bormann, denied access to the actor, Fox allegedly punched her in the stomach and in her private parts.
“He just kept staring at me with his mouth wide open and not saying anything,” the driver said. “I told him, ‘You have to leave buddy. You are trespassing on my bus.’”
Fox then “leaned in and started punching my crotch and breast.”
“I took one hand to his jaw and he was spitting blood. He stumbled backwards. This was my self-defense,” Bormann says, adding, “This was the only way I could protect myself…..from a man beating up on a woman.”
A police officer who was off duty when the incident occurred ended the fight by handcuffing Matthew Fox until the police arrived.
The actor was then detained by police, but not officially charged with assault. An investigation is in progress.
The woman also claims that Matthew Fox was drunk during the incident. She intends to press charges.
