Danny Martindale/WireImage(LOS ANGELES) — The bus driver who accused Matthew Fox of punching her in the chest and groin has dropped her civil suit.

Heather Bormann accused Fox, the star of Lost, of hitting her as he tried to board a party bus she was driving in August 2011.

Fox countersued and denied the allegations.

Entertainment Weekly
discovered Bormann’s attorney, Norman Stark, actually withdrew the suit last month. He told the magazine his client “intentionally failed and refused to provide full and timely cooperation and information.” Bormann also reportedly broke a promise to pay her attorney’s out-of-pocket expenses.

Fox has withdrawn his suit, according to E! News.

News of the dropped suit comes after a bad few weeks for the actor.

Earlier this week, Fox’s Lost co-star, Dominic Monaghan, tweeted that Fox beats women.

During a Q&A with Lost fans, one user asked Monaghan to get Fox on Twitter.

“He beats women. No thanks,” Monaghan replied.

Fox still faces his share of legal trouble. Three weeks ago, he was busted for DUI in Oregon.
