"There were creative differences on the set and a disagreement. I regret that it occurred," Gibson, 54, said in a statement to PEOPLE. "We all want to work together as a team to make the best show possible. We always have and we always will."
A source confirmed to PEOPLE that tension arose with a staffer when Gibson was directing and starring in an upcoming episode.
"Almost out of instinct, Thomas basically kicked him in the shin," says the source, adding that the writer "seemed alright at the time, but when his team found out it turned into something bigger."
The source continues, "This all happened two weeks ago, and everyone is fine now."
