6/13/2011 1:58 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

We're told officers responded to an accident scene around 3:30 AM -- after someone reported that Gary crashed his vehicle into two parked cars.

During the investigation, cops found "a few pills" of ecstasy -- and arrested the actor on a drug possession charge.

Dourdan was taken to a nearby station -- where he was booked and bail was set at $10,000.

After spending several hours in custody, Dourdan was released just after 12:00 PM.

It's not the first time Dourdan has been arrested for drugs -- back in 2008, Gary pled guilty to possession of cocaine and ecstasy after an incident in Palm Springs.

blake;
on one hand "truck driver" (aka ecstasy) has been illegal in the US since 1985. On the other hand, yes it does promote a feeling of love. In fact, there is a study from 2011 that supports your statement. The study on exclusively using ecstasy and NOTHING ELSE "showed no signs of cognitive impairment attributable to drug use: ecstasy use did not decrease mental ability."
My question is, when did you ONLY use Ecstasy at a party?

You idiots on TMZ that comment here! Ecstasy is a beautiful drug that makes people feel love. It is not the destructive scary thing that the "war on drugs" idiots would have you think. I highly suggest you try it! Maybe then you can get the stick out of your stupid A$$es!

Yes, I'm sure the families of all the people who died from overdoses of Ecstasy think it's a "beautiful drug".

I don't think there's anything wrong with POSSESSING ecstasy, or any other drug for that matter. Now, if you use it and get behind the wheel of a car or endanger another's life, that's another matter. However, if you just have it, use it in the privacy of your home or use it and get a driver, I'm fine it.

I'm really sorry to see this happening to him, I really liked this actor and he's probably killing any chance he has of doing another show.

So sad. I pray that you will see the need to get over your addiction. Be strong, be wise. Ask for real help, man.

He's still so sexy. And, yeah, the bad boy thing kind of adds to the 'mystique.'

I guess we know what he's been doing since being fired -- err, not having his contract renewed - from CSI becasue of his drugging.

Too bad. The man can actually act his face off when sober.
