The 45-year-old actor was reportedly en route to a fast food restaurant with his companion when he was arrested.
DUI is the latest in the string of troubles that "Lost" actor Matthew Fox has got into. The actor was busted for drunk driving on Friday, May 4 morning in Oregon.
According to TMZ, Fox was driving with a passenger and on his way to grab a late night dinner at a fast food restaurant. He was arrested at 3:23 A.M. for suspicion of driving while intoxicated. The 45-year-old was taken into custody and released later that day.
Fox's reputation was first put on jeopardy when it was reported that he had an affair with a stripper in 2009. The married actor denied the allegation, saying "The story is not true, and I'm not going to comment on it. (My wife) Margherita and I have been best friends and best lovers. She's the love of my life."
Then in August 2011, he was accused of punching a female bus driver in the chest and pelvic area after he attempted to board a private party bus in Cleveland, Ohio. The prosecutors decided not to charge the actor. A couple of months later, Fox launched a counter suit against the female bus driver, saying he has lost job because of the media attention surrounding the lawsuit and that he has received "public hatred, contempt, ridicule and shame."
