Sometimes a late night craving can turn into a year long headache. On Friday May 4, former Lost star, Matthew Fox was arrested in Oregon for driving while under the influence while he was on his way to a fast food restaurant. A police officer noticed he was driving erratically and pulled him over for failure to signal and inability to maintain lanes. This is important to note because in Forsyth County, GA police cannot legally pull you over randomly or because you are leaving a bar, you must have already committed an offense such as failure to signal before they can pull you over. If they suspect intoxication, it will be because of what they observe from inside the car once they have pulled you over i.e. slurred speech, bloodshot eyes, the smell of alcohol or drugs, etc.
The actor was taken into custodyand released a few hours later. This is his first DUI but he will still be facing charges such as jail time, loss of license, fines and community service.
