(LOS ANGELES) -- Matthew Fox, who in August was accused of attacking a female party bus driver who subsequently sued him, is now pursuing legal action against the woman.
TMZ.com reports the former Lost star has countersued Heather Bormann, who alleged an intoxicated Fox attempted to board a bus in Cleveland reserved for a private party, and then punched her in the chest and pelvis area after she told him to leave.
Fox says she attacked him -- something that she has already admitted, though she claims it was in retaliation of his alleged actions. He also claims that he's lost work because of the allegations, which he says have caused him "public hatred, contempt, ridicule and shame." He seeks unspecified damages.
Cleveland prosecutors in September said they declined to file charges against Fox in connection with the incident.
