A 29-year-old female bus driver accused Matthew Fox of repeatedly punching her outside a Cleveland nightclub at 1:30 in the morning on Sunday, August 28. Fox was in Cleveland to shoot a film.
The bus driver said that Fox attacked her when she wouldn’t let him get on her chartered bus, which was reserved for a private bachelor party. She told the Cleveland Plain Dealer, “He smelled like a liquor cabinet, like a bar. I told him, ‘Sorry, buddy, this is a private party. You have to get off my vehicle.’ I told him three times. He never said a word. He just looked at me.”
Fox, she said, started “swinging on her,” bruising her arms, leg, thighs and chest. When he didn’t stop, she punched him in the mouth. He wiped the blood from his mouth, then attacked her again.
In an interview with CNN, she said “He was swinging at my legs and, ultimately, my chest and my crotch area.”
Police on the scene detained but did not arrest him, and they let him take a cab back to his hotel.
A few days later, on August 31, prosecutors started interviewing witnesses to decide whether they would press assault charges against Fox.
And that seems to be all the news that has come out so far.
