Former Lost star Matthew Fox was arrested last Friday in Oregon on suspicion of driving under the influence. According to a report out today, Fox was nabbed by police in the wee hours of the morning as he ventured out in search of fast food. Specific details about the arrest are not yet available but it is believed that Matthew Fox was busted for drunk driving (as opposed to being impaired by another substance). Ugh, so disappointing.
“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.
Blah. I mean, how many times can someone express genuine disappointment with reckless and completely idiotic behavior like this? Moronity like this just goes to show that this kind of behavior happens all over the place, not just in big cities like LA. It’s not yet know who the other passenger in the car was but I am really hoping it wasn’t one of Fox’s children. I’m not sure what the punishment system is like in Oregon but I truly hope that Matthew Fox is punished to the fullest extent of the law IF he is found guilty of this crime. Impaired driving is so dangerous because it can affect other, innocent people who happen to be on the road at the same time. Thankfully, no one was injured here.
