Thomas Gibson

Arrested for DUI

1/6/2013 3:25 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0106_thomas_gibson_gettyThomas Gibson -- best known for his roles on "Criminal Minds" and "Dharma & Greg" -- was arrested early this morning for suspicion of DUI ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Gibson was driving in downtown Los Angeles at around 1:00 AM when he attempted to drive through a part of town that had been sectioned off for a half marathon. The race had already gone through that part of town (it started at 9:00 PM) but the area was still blocked off.

We're told Gibson was stopped and told he couldn't drive through ... but he proceeded to anyway.

According to our sources, police eventually stopped Gibson and detected an odor of alcohol. We're told Gibson refused to take a breathalyzer test. He was then arrested on suspicion of misdemeanor DUI and taken into custody at 1:37 AM.

His bail is set at $15,000 and, as of this posting, is still in custody.

I love the show, he's a great actor, now we get to smear his name all over God's creation. If he were just another person it would not appear in print as was done here. You don't kick a person when they are done. Let it be, let it rest, don't try and tarnish someone's name. Is he the first person ever to have a drink and make a poor decision? I think not.

Thomas Gibson did you try "do you know how I am" ?? Which i am sure the answer would have been NO or WHO CARES......I hope the judge gives you jail time just for being so stupid and not having a driver when you can easily afford it.

Why in the world we he have a $15,000 bond for a DUI? Unless he is a repeat offender, that's ridiculous.

If this guy can remember the events, then he wasn't too drunk to drive thru any obstacle course. So did he damage anything? Did he know his way home? And why was he alone? Did the pooooolice take Viagra earlier and was he all puffed up and out of control and the arrest gave him a wierd release in his britches and he was embarassed and had to make up for it by arresting this feisty loner at night without witnesses???? I think so.

Thomas Gibson from Criminal Minds was recently arrested in L.A. for a DUI. Apparently, he attempted to drive through road blocks that had been set up for a half marathon. Once again, I ask why these famous people are unable or unwilling to hire a driver or call a cab. I am concerned that people don’t take this offense more seriously. It’s one thing to put your own life at risk, but to put other people’s lives at risk is selfish and ignorant behavior.
