The firing was preceded by an apology by Gibson on Thursday.

"There were creative differences on the set and a disagreement. I regret that it occurred."

Gibson refused to provide details on what occurred, but Deadline reports that the actor allegedly kicked co-executive producer Virgil Williams.

Gibson has starred on "Criminal Minds" - a show that follows a group of FBI profilers - since its premiere in 2005. He previously starred in the hospital drama series "Chicago Hope" and the sitcom "Dharma & Greg."
