Fox has one passenger in the car with him when he was arrested at almost 3:30 a.m. The actor was on his way to a fast food restaurant while driving in Oregon, where he currently lives. He was taken into custody and released later that day. This isn’t his first run-in with the law. A Cleveland bus driver accused Fox of assault, battery and infliction of emotional distress last September. A rep for the actor had no comment.
John Travolta has been slapped with a lawsuit for allegedly inflicting sexual battery on a male masseur. His accuser, who is remaining anonymous, is suing for $2 million.

He says he can prove that Travolta wasn’t even in Los Angeles at the time of the alleged incident. Singer also said he plans on suing the masseur and his lawyer for malicious prosecution.
