Matthew Fox accused of punching woman, but he's not arrested




Former Lost star Matthew Fox was detained by the cops in Cleveland on Saturday night after allegedly hitting a woman, TMZ says. Don't worry, though, because he's such a big celebrity, he didn't officially get arrested.

TMZ says Fox was trying to get on a party bus when driver Heather Bormann tried to block him from board, just because he wasn't a guest. Can you beleive that? Fox's response: He "leaned in and started punching my crotch and breast," Bormann said, prompting an off-duty cop to handcuff him and get the on-duty cops called. Bormann gave as good as she got, punching him in the mouth and cutting his lip.

"I took one hand to his jaw and he was spitting blood. He stumbled backwards," she told the site. "This was my self-defense. This was the only way I could protect myself ... from a man beating up on a woman."

We have to note that even after all this, police let him go without being charged, for some reason. Bormann, who claims she may have broken her hand punching Fox, has yet to decide if she's pressing charges, which may be dependent on what Fox's next acting project pays.
