The man who Thomas Gibson allegedly kicked on the set of ‘Criminal Minds,’ which led to Thomas being fired from the show, is no stranger to show drama. Virgil Williams was reportedly suspended from ‘ER’ after allegedly threatening an assistant, and Thomas is ready to use that information to fight back after being axed from ‘Criminal Minds’ for good.
Virgil Williams, the man at the center of the Thomas Gibson, 54, drama, wrote for ER in 2006 and was a player/manager for the show’s softball team. Virgil flipped out when he learned that a female production assistant was going to take his spot on the team, TMZ reports.
Virgil reportedly called the woman into his office and went ballistic. He allegedly threatened her life and vowed to ruin her career, according to the outlet. The production assistant was left in tears. The show ended up suspending Virgil as a result of the alleged incident and demanded he take anger management classes.
Thomas knows all about Virgil’s past, and he wants to use it against him. Thomas feels like he was wrongfully fired from Criminal Minds, especially since Virgil still has his job on the show. Thomas and Virgil got into a disagreement on set, and Thomas allegedly kicked him. He insists the alleged kick was self-defense and is now considering legal action.
Thomas has said he regrets the incident ever occurred and wishes he could have stayed on Criminal Minds until the very end. Thomas had been with the show since its start in 2005. Thomas has since joined Twitter to stay connected to fans amidst the drama. “I wish I could thank each of you for your friendship & support. I love “Criminal Minds,” & I’m disappointed by what’s happened,” he tweeted on Aug. 16.
