"He hit me and he should pay the consequences of assaulting a woman," Bormann, a party bus driver, told Fox 8 Cleveland after filing her statement on Tuesday. "Right now, it's considered a civil matter, and that's why he was ultimately released Sunday morning, so I would have to press charges.”

In the police report, obtained by Radar Online, Bormann claims Matthew "tried to board a private party bus that she was driving,” and when she tried to block the entrance, he hit her “in the chest and stomach area."


"It was all within maybe a minute from me noticing him to fists flying," she added. "It was like a minute, if that."

Bormann said that she punched Matthew back in self-defense, hurting her hand as well. Reportedly, her bruises and injuries have been documented as part of the investigation.
