'Lost' Actor Matthew Fox Accused of Assaulting Woman (Updated)

Posted By on Wed, Aug 31, 2011 at 9:00 AM


Update: Heather Bormann, the alleged victim in the drunk Matthew Fox assault incident, visited the prosecutor's office Tuesday morning to press for charges to be brought against the actor, who wasn't arrested at the time of the alleged assault.

Bormann told Fox 8, "Right now it's considered a civil matter and that's why he was ultimately released Sunday morning, so I would have to press charges."

Regardless of the criminal matter at hand, Bormann says she plans on filing a civil suit.


The summer of movie-making in Cleveland has brought the gawkers, the stars, and the dough, but to this point, not the controversial celeb-tinged incident. Until now.

Details are still sketchy and so far it's only a one-sided story, but a woman claims that Lost star Matthew Fox, who is town filming the Tyler Perry movie "I, Alex Cross," assaulted her early Sunday morning on a party bus.

Fox 8 reports that the alleged victim says the drunk Fox tried to board a party bus for a ride back to his hotel. For some reason, the actor's Hollywood cache did little to persuade the strangers to welcome him, maybe because they were all peeved at how Lost ended. Keeping her compact with the riders, the victim says she told Fox that since he was not part of the group, he would not be allowed to board for a free taxi ride.

Fox then, according to the report, began punching the woman in the chest and stomach.

According to the report, the alleged victim struck Fox back in the face, causing a cut to his lip.

Police intervened and Fox was released to a friend, who escorted the actor to his hotel via a taxi.

No charges have been filed, but the incident report has been turned over to prosecutors. The party bus driver, it should be noted, took some swings at Fox, allegedly breaking her hand in the process.
