Thomas Gibson

DUI Arrest Video

'STOP RESISTING'

It took 5 fully-grown police officers to wrestle "Dharma & Greg" star Thomas Gibson to the ground during his DUI bust in L.A. this weekend ... and TMZ has the crazy arrest video.

We broke the story ... cops believe an intoxicated Gibson tried to drive his Audi SUV through a part of downtown L.A. that had been sectioned off for a nighttime half-marathon around 1 AM on Sunday morning. 

The footage begins with Gibson standing next to his car speaking with police ... when a bike cop arrives to the scene and screams for the actor to, "Get on the ground, NOW!"

At that point, all of the officers on scene rush toward Gibson and manhandle him to the ground as he yells, "Why?! Why!?"

While Gibson is on the ground, he can be heard telling the cops, "I am NOT resisting ... I am NOT resisting!"

After Gibson is successfully placed in cuffs, the cops help him up and escort him away from his vehicle.

Gibson was eventually taken to a nearby station where he was booked for DUI -- and was released later that day on $15,000 bail.

LOL! That was the worst footage EVER! The bike cop got all tough once he realized there were 5 'fully grown' cops to back him up? Good thing the cops were full grown, otherwise they would be tween cops!


I'm sorry TMZ, the digs were too hard to resist. I think Apple should come out with a phone camera zoom lens ... then everyone could be part-time paparazzi!

Is there EVER a time when cops don't use unnecessary force? I mean, this is ridiculous. He's just STANDING there. I'd hardly call that "resisting".

Cops are such tools.

It didn't so much "take" five officers to bring him down, as much as "five officers decided to jump on the bandwagon." I'm pretty sure that was completely unnecessary.

LA should stop having these stupid marathons like every weekend. That will solve problems like this.

I can see the little bikey policeman's light still flashing, other than that weak footage.

Your tax dollars at work, typical of these type of bully-wanna-be cops who become cops so they can carry around guns and tasers and force people to obey them...and gang up and rough them up.
"Get down on the ground!"...."F-ck you bitch I pay your salary you work for me".
If only :D
