Simma down now, Jack Shepard! Simma down! Fox has been in Cleveland filming I, Alex Cross. He was at a downtown bar and according to reports, wanted to get a ride back to his hotel so he boarded the private party bus. Heather Bormann, who was identified as the bus driver, told the Party of Five star that it was a rented private bus and he would not be able to board, blocking the entryway. That made Fox none too happy, and he allegedly started to punch Bormann in the crotch area and chest. Reports suggest that Fox was allegedly drunk during the altercation. Bormann in return punched him back, right smack on his mouth, leaving Fox with a cut lip. Bormann told TMZ that she thinks she broke her hand while doing so.

“This was my self-defense,” Bormann told TMZ. “This was the only way I could protect myself … from a man beating up on a woman. He just kept staring at me with his mouth wide open and not saying anything. I told him, ‘You have to leave buddy. You are trespassing on my bus.’ (He) leaned in and started punching my crotch and breast. I took one hand to his jaw and he was spitting blood. He stumbled backwards.”

Fox was detained by Cleveland police but was later released to ‘a friend’. While no charges have been filed, authorities are investigating the incident. Bormann, however, is meeting with prosecutors and may press charges against Fox.

Dude. You don’t go hittin’ on a woman. Let me add, allegedly hit a woman. No statement from Fox’s rep denying he punched the driver. Hmmm. Your thoughts?
