Matthew Fox Accused of Assaulting Female Bus Driver

Matthew Fox Accused of Assaulting Female Bus Driver

Matthew Fox is not doing so hot in Cleveland. The Lost and Party of Five actor found himself in handcuffs this weekend after allegedly assaulting a 29-year-old female bus driver in the Ohio city.

According to the police report, the victim says that Fox approached her around 1 a.m. on Sunday, seeking a ride back to his hotel. When he tried to board the private party bus that she was driving, the woman informed him that the bus was rented and she couldn't give him a ride. The actor tried to come on board anyway, so she got up from the driver's seat to block his way.

That's when Fox, 45, "punched her in the chest and stomach area," according to the victim's statement. She retaliated by punching him in the mouth, "causing a cut on his lip." She told police that she was worried her hand had been broken during the punch. Another man who witnessed the fight says that he intervened to help the bus driver.

Fox was detained but not arrested, and no charges have been pressed. TMZ reports that the fight took place outside of a bar, and the police report classifies the incident as "alcohol-related" -- though it doesn't say specifically if Fox had been drinking.

The actor is in Cleveland filming the movie adaptation of James Patterson's I, Alex Cross, in which he plays a serial killer.
