Actor Matthew Fox has launched a countersuit against the female bus driver who sued him over an incident in August.
The "Lost" star had attempted to board a party bus in Ohio in the early hours of Aug. 28 when he was confronted by driver Heather Bormann because his name was not on the private guest list.
A scuffle ensued, during which Fox was accused of hitting Bormann in the crotch and breast, prompting the driver to punch the actor in the face. Fox was detained by police but not formally arrested.

In September, Bormann filed three charges against the actor, including one count of battery, but Fox was never handed criminal charges.
Fox is launching a lawsuit against Bormann for provoking Fox during the altercation and subsequently causing him "public hatred, contempt, ridicule and shame" due to the media fallout.
The actor is seeking unspecified damages because of negative publicity generated, which allegedly cost Fox a number of job opportunities, according to Eonline.com.
