Matthew Fox Groin-Punching Suit Dropped

Danny Martindale/WireImage(LOS ANGELES) -- The bus driver who accused Matthew Fox of punching her in the chest and groin has dropped her civil suit.

Heather Bormann accused Fox, the star of Lost, of hitting her as he tried to board a party bus she was driving in August 2011.

Fox countersued and denied the allegations.

Entertainment Weekly
discovered Bormann’s attorney, Norman Stark, actually withdrew the suit last month. He told the magazine his client “intentionally failed and refused to provide full and timely cooperation and information.” Bormann also reportedly broke a promise to pay her attorney’s out-of-pocket expenses.

Fox has withdrawn his suit, according to E! News.

News of the dropped suit comes after a bad few weeks for the actor.

Earlier this week, Fox’s Lost co-star, Dominic Monaghan, tweeted that Fox beats women.

During a Q&A with Lost fans, one user asked Monaghan to get Fox on Twitter.

“He beats women. No thanks,” Monaghan replied.

Fox still faces his share of legal trouble. Three weeks ago, he was busted for DUI in Oregon.

Bus Driver Details Scrap with ‘Lost’ Star Matthew Fox

Danny Martindale/WireImage(CLEVELAND) -- “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.”

Matthew Fox Detained, Released after Alleged Assault

Danny Martindale/WireImage(CLEVELAND) -- Matthew Fox, who played Jack Shephard on the ABC drama Lost, was detained by Cleveland police Saturday after allegedly assaulting a female party bus driver.

According to a police report obtained by ABC News, Fox, 45, tried to board the bus and refused to move when the female driver, Heather Bormann, 29, told him it was a private vehicle. According to the report, Fox then "punched her in the chest and stomach area." Bormann punched Fox in the mouth, cutting his lip; a 24-year-old man also tried to help her.

The report said that Fox was not arrested, got released "to a friend" and took a taxi to his hotel. Both he and Bormann, a local resident, refused medical treatment, but the report said that she now believes she may have broken her hand.

The altercation occurred in a parking lot near a bar in Cleveland between 1 a.m. and 2 a.m. Saturday morning. No charges have been filed, but Bormann told TMZ.com that she's meeting with prosecutors Monday and may press charges.

Representatives for Fox didn't immediately respond to ABC News’ requests for comment. The actor has been in Ohio filming scenes for his upcoming film World War Z, which also stars Brad Pitt.

'Lost' Actor, 51, Weds 16-Year-Old

Brand X Pictures/Thinkstock(LAS VEGAS) -- May-December romances aren't unusual. But when the bride can't yet vote and the groom is eligible to join AARP? That's extreme, even for Hollywood.

Green Mile and Lost actor Doug Hutchison, 51, revealed on Monday that he wed aspiring country singer Courtney Alexis Stodden, 16, in May.

"We're aware that our vast age difference is extremely controversial," the couple told E! News in a statement released by their spokesperson. "But we're very much in love and want to get the message out there that true love can be ageless."

Stodden's mother gave parental consent so the two could wed in Las Vegas.

"We are totally supportive of this marriage," Krista Stodden told RadarOnline.com. "Doug is a wonderful man and we love him." She added, "Courtney was a virgin when she married Doug. She is a good Christian girl."

So, how did the two get involved? The fact that Stodden is signed to Hutchison's production company, Dark Water, might have something to do with it. A former beauty pageant queen (she competed for the title of Miss Teen Washington USA last year), Hutchinson is trying to make it as a country music crooner.

Celebuzz compiled a variety of her YouTube videos, including one where she talks for nearly seven minutes about overcoming bullying and explains that she wrote the song "Don't Put It On Me" (the video for which features a pink-haired dog) to support victims of bullying.

Character actor Hutchison is probably best known for playing problematic prison guard Percy Wetmore in The Green Mile. He also played DHARMA Initiative leader Horace Goodspeed in the TV drama Lost and has appeared in Law and Order: Special Victims Unit, Guiding Light, The X-Files, and 24.
