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.

joey _ I love TMZ 'til ya piss me off!    

There are people, standing in line to have a chance, like you had on CSI. You had it and you blew it! And not just once.
Too self-absorbed to realize that the quality of people you choose to hang around keeps going down.

Oh, and Blake on pg 1 - You're just a F------ Idiot! A lot of things make you feel love all by themselves, you pharmaceutical moron!

Can't believe some of the comments here. Ecstasy is ILLEGAL; it's considered a Scheudule 1 drug, right up there with cocaine and heroin. MDMA (short-cut name for it) has been linked to nerve damage. About 10 years ago, a father whose daughter died from taking ONE hit of Ecstasy ran a public service announcement for it..warning others of the dangers.

Other problems with it include hyperthermia, in which the body overheats; there is a big danger of cooking your brain on this stuff, hence all the juice and water consumed by all night ravers.

Oh yeah, and people seem to forget that since it is an illicit substance, you have NO way of knowing who made it, HOW, or what other crap they may have cut it with. It's not like this is an FDA controlled pharmaceutic being manufactured in a pristine lab setting.

For all you know, some drug gang is mixing it in a filty bath tub and cutting the final product with rat poison.

"The black Charlie Sheen..."

GARY HASN'T EVER SHOT HIS GIRLFRIEND OR BEEN KNOWN TO ABUSE ANYONE. HE'S JUST ADDICTED TO DRUGS. THE TWO CANNOT BE COMPARED.

WHY do people do this and drive a car? If they aren't hurting anyone else it isn't a big deal what they put into their bodies - I really feel that we are all the 'king of our domain' and are entitled to have whatever experience we choose - and that is OUR domain, once you get behind the wheel you're in everyone elses' domain that is on the road. Just get a taxi, a driver, etc...

Damn Gary! And I just got done watching an old CSI re-run where he was killed (Fired) off the show. No doubt because of his addiction problem.

it is a damn shame that gary aka warrick had to go off and get involved in that junk after he had been shot by the sheriff even I hated the mother'************* sheriff from the beginning "warrick" had a good thing going the producer could have played him like he was (a rouge investagator) and kicked some serious a's's he could have been a player (role player)
