Report: Thomas Gibson Suspended From Criminal Minds In Wake of Physical Altercation With Producer

Criminal Minds star Thomas Gibson has reportedly been suspended from the long-running CBS procedural for one, possibly two episodes in the wake of a physical altercation with one of the show’s producers.

According to a report by TMZ, and confirmed by our sister site Deadline, Gibson got into argument with an unnamed producer and kicked the individual in the leg.

In a statement to TMZ, Gibson said, “There were creative differences on the set and a disagreement. I regret that it occurred. We all want to work together as a team to make the best show possible. We always have and always will.”

Per Deadline, Gibson’s future with the show as a whole is under review following the incident.

Criminal Minds is currently in production on the fourth episode of Season 12.

Back in 2013, CBS dealt with a similar matter at CSI when co-star George Eads got into an on-set altercation with a writer. The actor was subsequently written off the series for several episodes.

Criminal Minds‘ 12th season is set to premiere on Wednesday, Sept. 28 at 9/8c.
