Matthew Fox Talks About His DUI Arrest

Matthew Fox Talks About His DUI Arrest

Matthew Fox, who is one of the starring actors in the famous television series “Lost,” was arrested this past May for a DUI charge in Oregon. On October 17, 2012, he talked about his DUI arrest during his appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres Show.

He told Ellen, “I was not happy about the DUI at all. I was terribly embarrassed by that. And take full responsibility for it. I really own that and have done every single thing the state of Oregon requires for a first time DUI offender… one of the statistics that I learned is that 50 percent of people that get one DUI will get another… I will absolutely not be in the statistic. There is just no way.”

Fox also disclosed information about the civil suit he faced for the criminal charges he received for allegedly punching a female driver in the chest. He told Ellen that was defending himself from a guy that had sucker punched him, and that the female bus driver accidentally got in the way of that. Fox then said that the bus driver made up a conspiracy to extort money from him. He told Ellen, “I’ve never hit a woman in my life. Never have, never will. That’s not a part of who I am as a man and hold that very dear to how I define my character. So that’s been very difficult.”
