'CSI' star arrested on drug charges

May 4, 2008

PALM SPRINGS, Calif. (UPI) -- Police say they arrested TV actor Gary Dourdan for alleged drug possession in Palm Springs, Calif., this week.

Dourdan, who is one of the stars of the long-running crime drama "CSI," was arrested early Monday after police found him apparently sleeping in a car, People.com quoted the Palm Springs Police Department as saying in a statement.

The 41-year-old actor was allegedly in possession of suspected cocaine, heroin, ecstasy and prescription pills at the time of his arrest. An officer investigating the incident said the actor seemed "disoriented" and possibly under the influence of alcohol or drugs, People.com said.

The "CSI" star reportedly posted $5,000 bail and was released after five hours in police custody.

People.com said it couldn't immediately reach a representative for the actor for a comment regarding his arrest.

Dourdan is due to be arraigned May 28.

EW.com earlier this month reported Dourdan is planning to leave "CSI." The report said the decision was a mutual one made by the actor and CBS/Paramount, the studio that produces the show for CBS.
