Matthew Fox, seen here outside the Ed Sullivan Theatre for the Late Show With David Letterman in New York City back on May 17, 2010 was detained by police after a woman accused him of punching her in the “chest and stomach area” outside a bar in Cleveland, Ohio on Saturday.
Gossip Cop reports that Fox apparently began arguing with the unnamed woman after he was denied entry onto her ‘party bus’, which had been parked outside a Cleveland pub.
A physical scuffle broke out, with the woman alleging that Fox struck her in the breast and stomach. The alleged victim has claimed that her hand may have been broken during the altercation.
Police soon arrived on the scene and initially took Fox into custody, but never formally arrested the star. He was later released. An investigation into the matter is ongoing, but no formal charges against Fox have been filed yet.
A representative for Fox has not yet commented on the incident.
