Isaiah Washington -- Accused of Bleeding Bank Dry

Former "Grey's Anatomy" doc Isaiah Washington is facing another round of accusations -- this time from a bank that claims he stiffed it on a six-figure loan.

The actor and his wife are being sued by City National Bank for allegedly not paying back a $100,030 loan they took out back in 2008.

According to the court docs, filed in L.A. County Superior Court -- the Washingtons got one hell of a deal ... with a 1.5% interest rate and not having to put down any collateral.

The bank is looking to collect their cash -- plus interest and penalties. Attempts to contact the Washingtons were unsuccessful.

OOPS -- someone at City National made a big mistake. An unsecured loan at 1.5% interest?? Where do I sign up? Oh, never mind -- I'm not a big "Celebrity."

I can see taking out a $100,000 loan, but why a $100,030 loan? What was the $30 for?

Isaiah who? Just another ungrateful leech in Hollywood. Could have been something, but he got too "high" on his celeb horse. Speaking of high...look at those eyes. High as a kite. Maybe the $30 was for 2 grams of weed. Loser.

He and his family were also evicted from their home. He can't find work at the rate he was making before, and that's why he's broke. Don't kick a dog when he's down. We've all been there (or will be someday).

I love that this ass is down and out because he got where he was as a part of a team on a #1 rated show, talked all kinds of crap, and got fired. so much for not beign able to make it without you. Show hasn't missed a beat.
Have fun in court, loser.

All he had to do was "show up" for work on time! He couldn't even do that.

If it wasn't for Washinton's family, Patrick Dempsy would be laughing all the way to the bank.

Well shame on the bank for not requiring the loan to be secured. I recently took out a scrawny $3,500 loan--the first bank said I had to have a co-signer and collateral and practically had me jumping through burning hoops. I ended up getting a better deal at another but still had to have the loan secured.
