“Lost” star Matthew Fox has finally taken his mug shot for his DUI arrest last May 4th.
According to reports, 45-year-old Matthew Fox returned to the Deschutes County Adult Jail in Bend, Oregon on the 29th of June to finally have this mug shot taken following his DUI arrest on May 4th. It took the cops quite some time to get have his picture taken because the camera at the jail was said to be broken on the night Fox was arrested. As such, the judge handling the actor’s case asked him to come back for a makeup photo.
Previous reports have stated that Fox was able to struck a plea deal with the prosecutors for his DUI arrest so he will not serve any time behind the cold bars of prison. In exchange, he pled no contest to one count of DUI. Part of the deal also requires Matthew Fox to refrain from drinking alcohol for a period of one year and he also needs to undergo a drug and alcohol treatment program.
If Matthew Fox complies with the orders from court, his entire DUI case will be expunged.
Fox is known for his role as Charlie Salinger on “Party of Five,” and for playing the role of Jack Shephard on the supernatural drama television series “Lost.”

Former “Lost” actor Matthew Fox had been engaged in several strange and potentially dangerous incidents last year, which might land him a stint in rehab.
According to reports, the 45-year old actor accepted a plea deal that will allow him to avoid doing prison time for his Oregon drunk driving case — that is if he successfully completes a “court diversion program.” On June 1, Matthew Fox pleaded no contest to one count of driving under the influence, and the actor will be forced to treat his alcohol issue
“He has to go to an evaluator for alcohol [abuse] and complete any recommended treatment program,” Deputy District Attorney Cliff Lu said of the actor.
If it means he would have to go to in-patient rehab, then he has no other choice but to do it, based on the recommendation of the evaluator. That will be the only time when his drunk driving charge will be expunged. If Matthew Fox successfully completes the terms of the diversion program within one year, his drunk driving charge, which might mean jail time, “is certain to be dismissed,” added Lu.
Last summer, the actor was accused of punching Heather Bormann in the crotch, the driver of a party bus. She recently dropped her lawsuit against the Matthew Fox, but the image of the actor was tainted once more when his former co-star Dominic Monaghan said that he beats women often.
