Apparently the star of one of those TV detective shows wandered onto the course of a nighttime half-marathon in Los Angeles the other night. The star, Thomas Gibson (previously on a show called "Dharma & Greg" as, one assumes, either "Dharma" or "Greg") brought his Audi SUV with him which was a clear violation of race rules. Audi's are not allowed as an authorized mode of transportation for this particular half-marathon.
He was also drunk according to the "police" and the "law" and "social customs".
I know celebrities get special breaks and all but now they are allowed to drive to the finish line of a half-marathon? With adult beverages?
Or was this some sort of Rosie Ruiz style attempt to win that blew up in his face by (a) plowing through a race course barricade and (b) reeking of non-Gatorade based alcohol?
He was later released on a $15,000 bond which was approximately $14,925 more than had he just paid the race entry fee and wore a bib.
Actors aren't the brightest bulb in the carnival, we know, but I'm sure we'll enjoy his future work on Law & Order: Marathon Edition.
