“He said, ‘This is the guy from ‘Lost,’ Matthew Fox.’ I said I don’t care if he’s Joe Schmoe — he assaulted me!”
These are quotes from Heather Bormann’s interview with ABC affiliate WEWS in which she described her scuffle late Saturday night with a man she identified as Hollywood actor Matthew Fox.
Bormann said she was driving a private party bus for a bachelor party. She was waiting for her customers outside the Shooters entertainment complex when Fox boarded the bus and demanded a ride to his hotel.
“He smelled like a bar. I mean he smelled like a liquor cabinet,” Bormann said.
When she refused, Fox allegedly lost it.
“He just would not get off my bus … so he started swinging, and I made him leave,” Bormann said.
“He was hitting me in the breast, he was hitting me in the groin area — I have bruises that I can’t show,” Bormann said. “He bruised me all up,” she claimed, exhibiting her knuckles.
“I did bust his mouth open. I got him good,” Bormann said. In a dramatic touch, Fox “took the blood and just threw it to the ground,” she added.
She said that’s when the police arrived, took a report, detained Fox briefly, then sent him to his hotel in a taxi.
“You’re gonna hit me, I’m gonna hit back. I mean, I bite just as hard as you can bite,” said Bormann, possibly literally.
She said she planned to press charges: “No matter who it’s from, assault is wrong; it’s against the law.”
