Thanks to Greg and JKemer for the heads up.
Matthew fox: F—k yeah. It’s been a long, trying year of sitting on my hands on a lot of negative shit said about me, when they’re the furthest things from who I am. That I beat a woman in Cleveland when in fact I was assaulted by a man and did nothing but retaliate against him? The 46 years I’ve been breathing on this planet, I have never hit a woman before. Never have, never will. But I think there’s still gonna be a lot of people out there who’ll think it’s true no matter what the f—k I say. Out of all the negative shit, the only thing that’s true is that I was arrested for DUI.
A lot has been reported about that night. Is it true you were arrested on your way to a fast-food place?
[Grins] I was on my way home from a fast-food place.
Just goes to show that fast food...
...is never a good thing. I had a Del Taco in one hand while trying to drive my friend’s car with the other...
That better have been the best damn taco you ever ate.
It was f—king good! [Laughs] My friend’s car is a 1967 Cadillac, which is a sweet car. I’m sure that had something to do with why I was driving that night. But it was a stupid f—kin’ decision. I understand that [the media] reported that I got sentenced to, like, a year of alcohol treatment and all this shit. I got the lowest level of alcohol informational treatment the state of Oregon will allow for first-time offenders. I did my four Sundays of group informational treatment, and you know what? I learned a f—k load from that. Half of all people who get a DUI get another [DUI], and that’s astounding to me, because I will bet you any amount of money that I will never get behind the wheel of a car after even one drink.
Is there anything else about that night that you want to clear up?
Oh, the other thing reported was that there was an unidentified woman in the car. There were two dudes in the car, and one of ’em is bald and weighs 220.
So the DUI you own up to, but the rest...
The rest of it—the Cleveland situation, the [Dominic] Monaghan situation— was a pile of bullshit, and I’m not gonna waste too much breath on that.
