Criminal Minds' Thomas Gibson Booked For Possible DUI

Criminal Mindsí Thomas Gibson is going to have to get into his own psyche to figure out his recent criminal flub. Before you get all hot and bothered assuming the actor had something to do with a serious crime, the Los Angeles police actually took Gibson into custody under suspicion of driving while intoxicated, which could lead to an official DUI write-up and plenty of hassle in the court.
Apparently, Gibson was driving in downtown Los Angeles when he encountered a roadblock set up for a half marathon in the city. Normally, when people encounter roadblocks they will simply turn around and take a separate route, but according to reports from TMZ and other outlets, Gibson opted to drive through the area sectioned off for the overnight marathon. Luckily, this occurred at 1 a.m. PST, well past the time the race, which started at 9 p.m. PST, had been run in the area, but the action was still wild enough to warrant a police pullover.
After getting stopped by police, the officers smelled alcohol on the 50-year-oldís breath and asked him to take a breathalyzer test, which didnít go over so well with the man who spends his days working as a fictional criminal analyst on CBS. Thus, police were forced to haul him into the police station and book him at the Los Angeles Central Jail under suspicion that he was driving after drinking. His bail was set at a whopping $15,000, but according to E!, the TV star made bail and left the police station at 1:30 p.m. on Sunday.
