(CBS) - The female bus driver, Heather Bormann, who claims actor Matthew Fox assaulted her, told the entertainment site TMZ that the actor punched her in the crotch and breast. The former "Lost" star was detained in Cleveland, Ohio on Saturday night after he allegedly punched the woman who wouldn't let him hitch a ride on a private party bus.

The gossip site says the 29-year-old driver blocked the entrance of the vehicle and informed Fox that he could not board because the bus had been rented out, according to a police report. Fox had reportedly been trying to take the private bus back to his hotel.

After being refused entry, Bormann told TMZ that the actor "leaned in and started punching my crotch and breast." The woman then hit back striking the actor in the mouth.

Bormann claimed in an interview with TMZ that Fox was drunk and said she hit back because, "This was the only was I could protect myself...from a man beating up on a woman."

The woman reportedly told police she might have broken her hand in the altercation and would be seeking medical attention if needed.

TMZ reports that the "Lost" actor was detained by police but not formally arrested. An assault report was taken and the incident is reportedly still under investigation.
