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.

They all ask why they are being arrested and claim they are not resisting. Boy those lines are getting old.

So many moronic people on here angry at the mean old cops. The guy is rich, drunk, and trying to drive into a freaking marathon! Seriously the internet is so full of stereo typical underemployed lefties who just cant stand that some cop once locked them up for a joint or speeding. Grow the hell up, this is a civilized law abiding society and a drunk driver doesnt make the rules and dictate how the police have to take him into custody. Had he killed a runner you pinkos would all be screaming where were the lazy old cops to stop him.

Is this the same police force that allows Lindsay Lohan to walk free for every single law she breaks - even hitting a baby buggy with a baby in it?

Seriously, 5 cops? For a drunk driver who doesn't seem to understand why he's being wrestled to the ground? From the reports it seems he was resistant at first, but you can't see him swinging his arms around or looking like a threat to anyone once he's outside his car. I don't approve of his decision to drive drunk but I feel bad for him getting attacked like that. I can't imagine how scary it must be to get pulled over for a DUI (even though most celebrities don't suffer the consequences to the same extent as we do, since thy can just hire a driver for a year and still keep their jobs). But it must be even scarier when all of a sudden 5 men are on top of you screaming at you. Geez.

Oh, TMZ. Love how the headline makes it sound like he was resisting while the video and story make it clear that he wasn't and the cops were overzealous. It's still disappointing that he was apparently DUI, but this video is more unflattering of the cops than it is of him.

btw... Those who know them know that Thomas Gibson is insanely jealous of Laura Linney's career - ever since they appeared in Tales of the City together.

It just looks like a blur of shadows and some screaming in the background.

Bummer. He always looked like such a skinny sh*t. Maybe there was a little more than booze in him? I'm pretty disappointed. I like his Hotch character.
