A few seasons into “Chicago P.D.,” some unsavory allegations regarding Jason Beghe’s behind-the-scenes behavior surfaced. In 2016, “NBCU was made aware via cast and crew of several issues on the set of P.D. involving Beghe, according to sources,” Deadline reported. As a result, the network launched an investigation into the complaints. According to the protests, the problems involved “anger issues — yelling and screaming by Beghe that members of the production found deeply offensive.” As a result, the network officially reprimanded the actor and provided him a coach to help deal with the anger issues. But more problems surfaced, with Beghe reportedly using “highly aggressive and sexually suggestive language as well as intimidating postures and more.”

In a statement, Beghe apologized to everyone involved in the “Chicago P.D.” series. “I am deeply sorry for my behavior, which I know has been hurtful to my friends and colleagues,” the actor said. He admitted to anger issues and said, “I have been working with a coach to help me learn how to mitigate my temper. It’s an ongoing process, and it has been a humbling one.”

The apology may have been a little too late. Sophia Bush, who starred alongside Beghe, left the show in 2017. Additionally, a crew member and another actor also exited the series. All three were rumored to have explicitly left because of Beghe’s workplace behavior.
