Last year, I discovered something new: Matthew Fox is a d-bag. I had been a Lost fan, and while I found Fox/Jack Shepherd to be severely annoying, I never really considered the possibility that he was a massive tool in real life. SURPRISE! He is. Last year, he got wasted and tried to board a party bus in Cleveland – and when the bus driver tried to stop him, Fox punched the driver in her stomach, boobs and vadge. I’m still not sure what’s happening with that case legally, although I think Fox filed a counter-suit against the woman he assaulted. I guess she walked into his drunken fist. Repeatedly. Anyway, here’s more evidence that Matthew is a d-bag with a drinking problem: he just got a DUI.
“Lost” star Matthew Fox was busted for DUI Friday in Oregon … TMZ has learned.
Law enforcement sources tell us, Matthew was arrested at 3:23AM on suspicion of driving under the influence. We’re told there was a passenger in the car.
Matthew was taken into custody and released later that day.
Details surrounding the arrest are unclear — but sources tell us, it was alcohol-related. We’re told Matthew was en route to a fast food restaurant for some late night eats at the time of his arrest.
Matthew lives in Bend, Oregon with his family. Calls to Matthew’s reps were not returned.
Some people claim that I treat men with substance abuse issues differently than women. Personally, I don’t see it. I’m disgusted that men AND women are still drinking and driving. Not to mention drinking-and-assaulting. What’s the difference between Matthew Fox and Lindsay Lohan, or Amanda Bynes? Matthew is WAY too old to pulling this crap. If anything, I have less built-in sympathy for him because of his age (45) and his previous issues (punching a bus driver in the vagina).
Anyway… I wouldn’t be surprised if Fox’s reaction to this incident would be to finally go into rehab and deal with some of his issues. Or maybe he’ll take the Lohan-Bynes route and just keep on partying, driving and assaulting.
