Prosecutors told CNN that they have photos of numerous bruises on Bormann's arms and legs. According to Bormann, the "Lost" star — visibly intoxicated, she said — attempted to board a private, chartered party bus and became violent when he was refused entry past midnight on Sunday.

"He smelled like a liquor cabinet, like a bar," Bormann (who didn't recognize the star at first) told Cleveland.com of Fox, in town to shoot the film "I, Alex Cross." "I told him, 'Sorry, buddy, this is a private party. You get off my vehicle.' I told him three times."

After Fox threw several punches, Bormann says she retaliated by punching him in the mouth. He was arrested and released later Sunday morning; Bormann visited the hospital to have her left hand bandaged.

Fox's rep hasn't commented on the situation or the new charges.
