OTRC: Matthew Fox of 'LOST' arrested in Oregon for DUI

"LOST" actor Matthew Fox has reportedly landed in trouble again.

The 45-year-old actor was arrested and charged with drunken driving in Oregon, according to the Associated Press. Police say Fox, who lives in the city of Bend, was stopped early on May 4 after an officer noticed he failed to signal properly and stay within a lane of traffic.

The officer determined Fox was driving under the influence and took him to the Deschutes County Jail. He was released later that day after he was booked into custody. Fox has a court appearance date scheduled for June 17.

Fox, who is known for playing Jack Shephard on the ABC series "LOST," was detained on suspicion of punching a female driver of a party bus in Cleveland, Ohio in August 2011. The prosecutor's office later decided not to charge the actor.

The 29-year-old driver, Cleveland resident Heather Bormann, had told police that in the early hours of August 28, the 45-year-old actor tried to board the private party bus she was driving and asked her for a ride to his hotel.

Bormann said the actor smelled of alcohol and that she told him that that vehicle was rented out and blocked the entrance to the bus. Bormann told authorities that Fox began to punch her in the chest and stomach area. She said she fought back, punching Fox in the mouth and causing a cut on his lip.

Fox was not arrested formally and was released "to a friend," after which he took a taxi to his hotel, the police report said.

At the time, Fox was filming the movie "I, Alex Cross." Fox is also known for playing Charlie Salinger, a family's oldest brother and guardian, on the FOX show "Party of Five," which ran between 1994 and 2000.

"I, Alex Cross," a thriller, also stars Tyler Perry and "Conan The Barbarian" actress Rachel Nichols, is due to be released on October 26, 2012. Fox also appears in another film set to hit theaters next year - "World War Z" with Brad Pitt. The film is set to be released on June 21, 2013.
