The drama continues for Thomas Gibson.
The actor was fired from “Criminal Minds” after he got into an altercation with one of the show’s writers. He has since hired a Los Angeles-based law firm.
But this new legal drama has nothing to do with his dismissal from the hit CBS drama. According to TMZ, Gibson has filed a class action lawsuit against Volkswagen.
In the paperwork, Gibson claims that an L.A. dealership owned by VW lied when they told him his 2012 Audi A7 offered clean diesel, fuel efficiency and horsepower.
Like millions of Americans, Gibson was affected by the massive recall on VW models last year. Volkswagen is Audi’s parent company. The car manufacturer faced a lot of backlash after it was discovered that its vehicles passed the government emissions tests under false pretenses.
TMZ speculates that Gibson may be going after VW on his own in order to score more of a settlement.
