Criminal Minds star, Thomas Gibson after kicking a writer.

Thomas Gibson worked on Criminal Minds for 12 years and appeared on 225 different episodes but, according to a new report, the actor was fired from the hit TV series.

According to TheWrap, Thomas Gibson was let go from the CBS TV series after kicking a writer following a creative disagreement. He was previously suspended for only two weeks.

From TheWrap:

“Thomas Gibson has been dismissed from ‘Criminal Minds,’” CBS Television Studios and production company ABC Studios jointly told TheWrap on Friday. “Creative details for how the character’s exit will be addressed in the show will be announced at a later date.”

Apparently, the writer complained to his agent, which led to Gibson getting suspended. However, hours later CBS pulled the plug on Gibson’s acting career on Criminal Minds.

According to Gibson he said he became “aggressive” with the writer. “There were creative differences on the set and a disagreement,” the Gibson explained to TheWrap in a statement Thursday. “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.”

This news comes after Shemar Moore, a former actor on Criminal Minds, was robbed by a guest actor on the show. According to Fox News, an actor who guest starred on the CBS hit TV series Criminal Minds, was sentenced on charges that he stole more than $60,000 from actor Shemar Moore.

Criminal Minds centers around an elite squad of FBI analysts that track down the world’s most twisted criminals. Each member of the group is a “mind hunter” and brings their own talents to track down the criminals. It will be interesting to see how the next season of Criminal Minds plays out with Gibson.
