'CSI' Star -- Charged for 'Hillbilly Heroin'

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

Former "CSI" star Gary Dourdan has been charged with drug possession -- after officials determined he was carrying oxycontin when he smashed into several parked cars in Hollywood on June 13.


The L.A. City Attorney tells TMZ ... Dourdan was also charged with possession of drug paraphernalia.

Initially, cops believed Dourdan was in possession of ecstasy during the incident ... but it appears the pills were later ID'd as oxycontin -- a prescription painkiller also known as "hillbilly heroin."

As for the vehicular destruction Dourdan allegedly caused that morning ... he won't face criminal charges for that ... it's the insurance company's problem.

If convicted on all charges, Gary faces up to a year in jail.

It's not like he's been convicted of doctor shopping for Oxycontin while ranting about how all drug addicts should be jailed. What? Too soon?

I feel sorry that he is going through the drug problems he is having but the truck is not going to fix itself or be taken out of the towing yard for free. Pay up the money and get the people a new car and pay for the towing yard fees.

He's black, so he's probably going to get to spend some time in jail.

Just another celebrity who has no common sense or care for anyone else but themselves. He thinks because he is a celebrity it excuses him from the law and allowed to have ghetto behavior. His self entitlement is only eclipsed by his arrogance.

Maybe the court system could arrange a CSI reunion between Gary Dourdan and Sam Jones III sense they both got caught with "hillbilly heroin". They could be bunk mates

CSI: Crime Scene Investigation (TV series)

+ Evaluation Day (2001) … James Moore
+ Crate 'n' Burial (2000) … James Moore (as Samuel L. Jones III)

He's a loser. Glad they gave him the boot off the show. He'll probably burn through all of his money and living in a trailer in 10 years

How very sad!
I wonder if he had an injury or something wrong with him to take this highly addictive drug? I noticed was it earlier this year or last year that he was on crutches for a while? Had his "right" leg I think it was wrapped up and using a cane? Maybe he has a health issue?
I think its so sad... I wonder if he's just a junkie period? in 2008 he was caught with hard drugs and now this prescription drug... how sad that he is living his life with a false sense of reality.

I hope for Gary as I would hope for anyone in life to get some help, move away from L.A and to a place to start fresh and fly in to work IF he gets jobs. It seems like he keeps walking the same path of destruction while ending up in the same place Court. At least he didn't hurt anyone or get charged with wreckless endangerment while intoxicated or something..

We all know hollyweird doesn't forgive quickly. Look at Mel Gibson, R. Downey Jr... it takes a minute.

Good luck Gary!
God speed.
You'll need it.
