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.

The man needs serious help with his drinking problem. Maybe a little jail time will take care of that.

You all got it wrong. To hit her vagina, he would first have to slap her thigh and ride the wave in. Surfs uuup!

My fiance was actually on the party bus that night, it was his close friend from work's bachelor party going on in the bus. They were inside when Matthew Fox tried to get on the bus, they didn't know who he was and he was completely wasted as well as belligerent (which was why they didn't want him to come on).. .they had no idea he was Matthew Fox though. They pretty much thought it was some random wasted guy, and they & Heather just tried to keep him from coming on since he was obviously being pretty forceful, but instead of going after the 15 guys there, he punches the girl. Sounds like a really nice person to me! We just thought it was really wierd because we talked about it the night after, how some random guy did that, and then today it's all over the news

None of this makes any sense. Why the hell would he want to board a bus in general? I don't care if he was drunk if that part is true anyway. He has a limo for that. It doesn't make sense. Even in the interview. I think she says that he wa********* me but never mentions the arms but specifically mentions other areas. But then claims she has a bruise on her arm.

If he only hit her in the crotch and the breast, why were her arms bruised. It makes it very clear in all reports on the incident he never hit her in the arms.
