'CSI' Star's Arrest -- The INSANE Path of Destruction

7/1/2011 5:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Gary Dourdan SMASHED his SUV into a parked 1969 Ford truck on the night he was arrested for drug possession in L.A. ... and now the owner of the truck says Gary refuses to pay for the damage.

Cops had responded to the crash scene on June 13 ... after someone reported that Gary hit TWO parked cars around 3:30 AM. During the investigation, cops say they found ecstasy on Gary and arrested him for possession.

The owner of the truck says her car was towed away from the scene ... but it remains in an impound lot because she can't afford to pay the bill ... and claims Gary is ducking her insurance company.

Currently, Gary is not facing any criminal charges for the crash -- but we're told he's not off the hook .. because the D.A. could drop the hammer on the actor when they get the case.

No comment from Gary's camp.

Another "don't you know who I am" celebrity s***bag who thinks they're apparently above the law...the countdown towards Liho's similar path to destruction is 2 days now even though she got butt ugly plastered day one (note to women out there, nothing says skank more than public drunkenness)...

Good riddance!    

I'm sure Lindsay's already got Dina trying to line up a date with him. The man of her dreams. A clueless druggy that cannot ever learn from past mistakes, just like her.

Oh what a surprise! A celebrity that doesn't take care of their responsibilities.

The truck wasn't a classic in mint condition. It was an old clunker. How much is it worth, $75? And why does Gary need to contact her insurance company? Her insurance company can contact his insurance company? I'm sure they will hand over the $75 with no problem.

Well, . . . apparently, Gary hasn't been filmed in a work related sense any time recently, at least for anything noteworthy, as we still refer to him as a "CSI star", though he hasn't been on the show for either side of 5 years now. That 1969 Ford pickup obviously hadn't been restored (or even repainted), so why didn't he spend $3500 of his "chemical" allowance to pay this person and make it "go away". Another very poor, less than though out move by Mr. Dourdan.

Good luck to all involved . . .

Pay up, Gary ! ! ! ! ! !

So let me get this straight. LA is still crushing Lindsay Lohan under their heel over a 4+ year old DUI with no bodily injury or property damage, but the DA isn't even perusing a simple drug possession charge against him? after a single vehicle wreck like this???He plowed into two parked cars at 3:30 in the morning. Was he even investigated for DUI and drug tested after the accident???

Just shut up you idiot. It's an old work truck. In FL any old truck that runs is a quick easy $1000 quick sale. Who the fvck gives away an old running work truck for $75?

I can't imagine it's worth any less in CA, in fact more because being a 69 it's exempt from California smog emissions testing. That's HUGE to anyone who hates putting up with that crap and expense of trying to keep their old truck running well enough to pass emissions testing.

Here's how it's done. Her insurance company gets in touch with His insurance company. She doesn't go directly to him. That's ridiculous.

And if she doesn't have an insurance company? Then she's equally as stupid as the guy that hit her. Then she hires an attorney to go after his insurance company.

Wow you people are horrible. Poor guy has a addiction. Its truly sad to see someone lose everything.
Addiction is almost the worst disease there is. It takes everything from you and the people that love you.
I hope he finds help. I hope the law sends him to rehab instead of jail.

@pappratty: I think you need to put the bong down now. That made no sense whatsoever. Learn to spell and grab a dictionary while you're at it. What Gary did is something he will have to pay for and live with. It's pretty sad to have a great career and ruin it by drugs, drinking and driving. I doubt these people will ever learn. Thank goodness he didn't kill someone. It could have been worse. He will probably get away with it like most of them do.
