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.

I'm glad I don't live in Bend, Oregon and drive home from work at 3 am. Just saying.

He was arrested at 3:23am. Hold "Shift" for the first "3" in the time and you get #:23. Jack Shepard was candidate #23.

He looks like he has the ability to be a mean person and he had a drunk altercation sometime back with a female bus driver whom he punched, so Matt, get help man. You seem to have drinking and anger management issues.

Seems like another of the island's powers is to cause people to drive drunk. What is this, 4 or 5 of them now?

I can understand why people get pop drunk from a bar but celebrities with money can easily pay a taxi $40 to drive them home.

What is it with celebs and driving drunk? As if they didn't have the money to hire a driver! Or take a cab! Alcohol indeed kills brain cells! What other explanation for such dumb behavior. Even more disappointed, if it was a actor/singer/celeb that I liked at first... quickly losing all my respect for those idiots!

Ok Jack let it go. I wish Vincent were with you. The island is waiting, and so am I.

I really miss L O S T

yeap, I have all the seasons but still. There were so many nice places to live, take your pick - The Swan hatch, Othersville, the Communications center was cozy enough, the BlackRock, the beach, even the Elizabeth was nice, if you like boats.

fyi, LOST is NOT dead and never will be, so get LOST

Bend, Oregon is where I live and our community is one of the best in the many options to get home if you have been drinking. He should have used Sober Dudes! Not right to drink and drive. To many people die that way.
