TMZ also reported on Jan. 6 that the area of town Thomas Gibson was driving through had been closed due to a marathon. Although the runners had already raced through that area, it was still sectioned off. A police officer stopped Thomas Gibson and told him he couldn't drive through the area.
“This is very disappointing,” Gayle Monroe, from Warr Acres, said. “I thought he'd know better. I have no patience with people who drive drunk. Anyone and everyone who drives drunk needs to be prosecuted and have their driver's license and keys taken away.”
Despite the police officer's warning, Thomas Gibson continued driving through the area. He was pulled over a second time. That was when the smell of alcohol was detected.
Thomas Gibson refused to take the breathalyzer test. He was arrested and taken into custody. Thomas Gibson was given granted bail. At the time of publication, he had not paid the $15,000 and was still in custody.
