Thomas Gibson Fired from ‘Criminal Minds’



Thomas Gibson is no longer a cast member of Criminal Minds. The actor was fired from the show, after having been suspended for an alleged altercation with a write.

Gibson allegedly kicked one of the show’s writers in the shin. The writer was fine, but the situation soon became an issue once the rest of the team found out.

“Thomas Gibson has been dismissed from Criminal Minds,” reads a statement released to PEOPLE by ABC Studios and CBS Television Studios. “Creative details for how the character’s exit will be addressed in the show will be announced at a later date.”

In response to his dismissal, Gibson released this statement to PEOPLE: “I love Criminal Minds and have put my heart and soul into it for the last 12 years. I had hoped to see it through to the end, but that won’t be possible now. I would just like to say thank you to the writers, producers, actors, our amazing crew, and most importantly, the best fans that a show could ever hope to have.”

Criminal Minds returns for season 12 on Sept. 28 on CBS.
