(Newser) Lost star Matthew Fox apparently had a crazy Saturday night: TMZ reports that he was detained by cops outside an Ohio bar after allegedly assaulting a female bus driver. It all started when Fox attempted to board the party bus she was driving, though he wasn’t a guest. Heather Bormann claims that as she tried to block him from coming on, Fox “started punching my crotch and breast.” Though he was handcuffed and detained, he was released without being arrested, but an assault report was taken and Bormann says she may press charges.

Bormann also notes that she punched Fox back—in the face—in self-defense, and that she may have broken her hand. When she initially tried to get Fox to leave, she tells TMZ, he was too drunk to understand and “just kept staring at me with his mouth wide open and not saying anything.”
