Matthew Fox Accuser

I Punched Him In Self-Defense

8/29/2011 7:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The woman who punched Matthew Fox in the face this weekend tells TMZ ... she HAD to let her fists fly because the actor struck first and she needed to defend herself.

TMZ spoke with Heather Bormann ... who tells us she was driving a party bus for a private party Saturday night in Cleveland -- when Fox boarded the vehicle.

Bormann claims she told Fox he wasn't welcome on the bus -- but he was too drunk to understand.

Bormann says, "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.'"

That's when Fox "leaned in and started punching my crotch and breast."

Bormann says, "I took one hand to his jaw and he was spitting blood. He stumbled backwards."

"This was my self-defense," Bormann says ... adding, "This was the only way I could protect myself…..from a man beating up on a woman."

Bormann says she's meeting with prosecutors today -- and may press charges.

I love how a lot of people are instantly defending him, and saying the woman's story is "off" and making excuses.

I'm sure this'll get brushed under the rug anyway like Josh Brolin or Sean Penn's domestic violence charges. Unlike Chris Brown who admits a mistake and tries to move on and is crucified every moment for it. What a hypocritical society we live in.

Stop saying Matt Fox is nice!...he is not a nice man at all when he drinks. And from what I have read about him over on the LOST fan boards, he is a mean drunk. There was a story last winter that TMZ had on Fox and a stripper and guess what???...more drinking!!!

I agree that something sounds fishy, here. Guess the driver will "feel better" if some green is handed to her.
Aside from that, Matthew; if you're listening; Try to learn from what Mel Gibson went through because he was in denial about the power of alcohol! Don't you see how alcohol whupped Mel's a--?
It will do the same to you. Makes no diff to alcohol!
I know that show biz is rough and tough! But the majority make it through the rough patches all right. They even develop a sense of humor about their powerlessness over alcohol! Follow their lead, please!

Don't know how tall this woman is, but she looks as if she may be about the same weight as the man. Men and women are supposed to be equal these days. So what difference does it make she is a woman, if she wa********* him too.

Wow.. she is big enough to be a man... Not to mention she wont take him to corut .. she will settle for a large sum of money and live life happiily ever after..... Oh yeah and Heather idiot.. Next time keep the door to the bus closed until you see your guest; Also when you see someone drunk help them, don't get confrontational and tell them they have to get lost.. that just puts gas on the fire... How does your girlfriend feel about this whole ordeal???
