Thomas Gibson arrested on suspicion of drunk driving.

Criminal Minds star Thomas Gibson has been arrested on suspicion of drunk driving.

The 50-year-old actor was in downtown Los Angeles in the early hours of Sunday morning when he attempted to drive through an area that had been sectioned off for a half marathon.

After being stopped and informed of the diversion he allegedly continued to attempt to drive through the cordoned off area.

He was then stopped by police who allegedly noticed a strong smell of alcohol. After refusing a breathalyser test Gibson was taken into custody at 1.37am. According to website TMZ Gibson's bail is set at $15,000 and he remains in custody. The father-of-three lives in Texas with his children and wife of 19 years.

His best known roles include Aaron Hotchner on CBS's Criminal Minds, Daniel Nyland on CBS's Chicago Hope, and Greg Montgomery on ABC's Dharma & Greg, for which he was twice nominated for a Golden Globe.


Aaron Hotchner would be disappointed.
