'Criminal Minds' actor Thomas Gibson arrested for DUI



rsz_tbd-thomasgibson010813.jpgCriminal Minds star Thomas Gibson got some firsthand law enforcement experience when he was arrested and charged with DUI after trying to run a police barricade. Thank goodness no one ended up re-enacting a scene from Chicago Hope.

E! says the 50-year-old was arrested around 1 a.m. Sunday morning in L.A. after he tried to drive through a barricade erected to cordon off an overnight half-marathon. The cops smelled alcohol on his breath and he refused to submit to a Breathalyzer test, so off to the pokey he went.

He was released Sunday afternoon on $15,000 bail, but his reps had no comment. Apparently his pleas that he used to be on Dharma & Greg didn't win him any friends in the LAPD.
