How are you going to make it back to the island if you have to be held in the drunk tank overnight, Jack? You’re just lucky you don’t need a driver’s license to travel back in time. That’s…that’s what happened on Lost, right? We’re still not 100% clear on the mythology. What is 100% clear, however, is the fact that Lost star Matthew Fox has some serious issues with alcohol, as evidenced by his DUI arrest in his home state of Oregon last night. According to TMZ, Fox was arrested at 3:23am while he and a passenger were attempting to drive to a fast food joint…in another dimension! Is that what happened on Lost maybe? Do you think Matthew Fox has to drink to deal with the uncertainty of the series’ finale? No, that’s terrible. Just because that’s why we drink doesn’t mean we should be projecting it onto anyone else….
Of course, getting busted in the middle of the night while sating his munchies is only the second most embarrassing booze-related thing Matthew Fox has supposedly done in the past year. Last August the actor was arrested for…um…allegedly punching a Cleveland party bus driver in the crotch. In all sincerity, we hope Fox gets some help for his ongoing problem. We forget more and more details about Lost each passing day, and we don’t want to have to rewatch the whole thing just to update you on one guy’s arrest record.
