Matthew Fox
was detained by cops in Cleveland, Ohio Saturday night after allegedly assaulting a woman outside of a bar ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources at the scene tell us ... the "Lost" star allegedly tried to enter a party bus -- even though he wasn't a guest on the vehicle.

We're told the woman who was driving the bus tried to block Fox from getting on board -- at which point, he allegedly punched her in the breast and the "stomach area."

Fox was handcuffed by an off-duty officer -- and was later detained by police.

Fox was released without being formally arrested.

An assault report was taken and the matter remains under investigation.

We have not been able to reach Fox for comment.

UPDATE: According to the police report, obtained by TMZ, the woman PUNCHED BACK -- and struck Fox "in the mouth ... causing a cut on his lip."

The woman told police she may have broken her hand during the altercation.

Fox was later released to a friend ... who put the actor into a taxi and accompanied him back to his hotel.

I can believe this guy did this. He comes off as a world class creep in interviews. I glad this woman bashed him in the face. Maybe he will think twice before laying another hand on a woman again.

I don't care how "nice" he is when sober, because some people are just plain mean/crazy when they drink. He deserved to be arrested if he attacked someone. Sounds to me like he might need some AA.

I am so sick of these actors think that they can just do anything to people and get away with it. They need to be treated just like any other "Joe" and be arrested and processed and held until they are to face a judge.

Seems like a total BS story. Ya he was so angry and violent so he hit her tit? who does that. He was simply trying to get the old hag to move, she didn't and now she is filing false charges, hope she goes to jail.
