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

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.

He was arrested 2 or 3 years ago after Coachella. The police found him passed out in his car on the side of the road with heroin. Good to see he's switched from the real thing to the hillbilly version

I still like actor and still fell that there is hope for him. People who take drug, are usally people who are'nt happy. Leave the man alone. When Charlie Sheen was and still is doing his drugs 2\1\2mans no one brother him until. When making comment about someone people sure be careful about what that are saying because there're kids, Mr. Gary Dourdan is a father. Donot write things that want your kids to hear. I know it's in the public eyes but we donot have to explore his situation. I've faith in him Gary you're going to be alright.
