Matthew Fox arrested on charges of assault

Los Angeles: Actor Matthew Fox has been arrested for allegedly punching a female bus driver when she refused to let him board.

The 45-year-old `Lost` star was arrested on Sunday for physically abusing Heather Borman in the early hours of morning when she did not allow him to board a bus - which was rented for a bachelor party he was involved with in Cleveland, Ohio, reported TMZ online.

Heather, who claimed that Fox was inebriated when the altercation happened, confirmed that she was considering filing a lawsuit.

"I told him several times that he was trespassing, that it was a private party. He never said a word to me, he just stood there staring at me. He was inebriated and the smell of him was like a bar. After the third time I told him to get off my bus, he just stepped in for a right hook to my pelvis area and started wailing on me like I was a man.

"I had no idea who he was at the time. I did not know until after he was in custody. I`m pressing charges. Assault is wrong, I really do feel violated. He was hitting me in places I didn`t think anybody would hit me...," said Heather.

The `Party of Five` star had to be pulled away by three men and was detained by an off-duty police officer until law enforcement arrived.

Though he was released after being arrested, investigations are still on.
