Lost star Matthew Fox has been accused of hitting a woman in the boobs and the stomach area. Holy crap, dude, calm yourself. Apparently he wanted to board a party bus, but was blocked by the driver, because he wasn’t a guest.
The actor was detained in Cleveland, Ohio, after assaulting the driver. He was released without being formally arrested, but an assault report was filed and the issue is under investigation.
Here’s what went down, according to what we’ve been able to ascertain:
He tried boarding the bus, but was blocked by the woman driver. He punched her in the breasts and the stomach area. She punched him back in the mouth, which resulted in a cut on his lip. Reportedly, the woman may have also broken her hand during the scuffle.
The woman is named Heather Bormann and she said that she was driving the bus for a private party on Saturday night when he tried to get on board. She says that she told him he wasn’t welcome on the bus, but he was inebriated and didn’t understand. She said, “He just kept staring at me with his mouth wide open and not saying anything. I told him, ‘You have to leave buddy. You are trespassing on my bus.’”
At that time, he reportedly “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. This was the only way I could protect myself…from a man beating up on a woman.
TMZ reports that she is looking into pressing charges against him over the attack.
