"Lost" star Matthew Fox was busted for DUI Friday in Oregon ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell us, Matthew was arrested at 3:23AM on suspicion of driving under the influence. We're told there was a passenger in the car.

Matthew was taken into custody and released later that day.

Details surrounding the arrest are unclear -- but sources tell us, it was alcohol-related. We're told Matthew was en route to a fast food restaurant for some late night eats at the time of his arrest.

Matthew lives in Bend, Oregon with his family. Calls to Matthew's reps were not returned.

4:40 PM PT -- A rep for the Bend PD just released a statement, claiming Matthew was pulled over for failing to maintain lane and failure to signal. Matthew was arrested on the scene after the officer decided he was intoxicated.

So far, there's no mug shot -- we're told the camera at the police station was broken. Matthew will have to return to get his photo taken. He's due back in court in June.

So the passenger let's the drunk driver drive. Do they even realize that almost all passengers die first before the drunk drivers?

Can't we change the law at least a little. Get popped for a DUI and you get a mandatory 72 hour hold. This is on top of any other possible penalty or fine. Keep these idiots in the cell for 3 days just to give them some time to be scared.

Last summer Matthew got into it with a bus driver in Cleveland who refused to let him board the bus presumably because he was so drunk. As Majestik says, I think Matt could use a little help with alcohol dependency. Too bad, he seems like a nice guy.
