“He smelled like a liquor cabinet, like a bar,” Bormann told Cleveland.com of the actor, who attempted to board the bus at about 1:30 am Sunday morning. “I told him, ‘Sorry, buddy, this is a private party. You get off my vehicle.’ I told him three times.”

But, then she says Fox began “swinging on her,” and she then retaliated by punching the actor in the mouth. Bormann says she has bruises on her arms, thighs, right leg and chest from the incident and she went to local Fairview Hospital to have her left hand which is bruised and swollen, bandaged.
