Actor Thomas Gibson Gets Plea Deal For DUI

Actor Thomas Gibson Gets Plea Deal For DUI

Actor Thomas Gibson, known for his role on the hit TV show “Criminal Minds”, plead “no contest” to an alcohol related reckless driving charge on January 29, 2013. Gibson was arrested for DUI earlier this month on January 6 after driving his car into a barricade in downtown Los Angeles. After pleading “no contest”, prosecutors dropped the DUI charges, which is not surprising considering the fact that the actor does not have a history of DUI arrests. Now, under the terms of the plea deal, Gibson will have to pay $300 in court costs, attend alcohol education classes for one year, and complete 36 months of probation.

On the night of the arrest, Thomas Gibson drove his Audi SUV into a barricade meant to block traffic in downtown Los Angeles during a nighttime half marathon. When police arrived and began to question Gibson, they detected an odor of alcohol coming from the actor and requested he take a breathalyzer test. Gibson refused to submit a breathalyzer test; he was eventually brought down to the ground by five police officers while he shouted, “I am not resisting. I am not resisting“. Thomas Gibson was arrested on suspicion of misdemeanor DUI and released the next day on $15,000 bail.
