'CSI' Star

'Hillbilly Heroin' Charge DROPPED

8/20/2011 1:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0819-gary-dordan-EX
"CSI" star Gary Dourdan no longer faces a drug possession charge after his arrest back in June ... when cops claim they found OxyContin pills -- aka "Hillbilly Heroin" -- on the actor.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, prosecutors dropped the charge for oxy possession earlier this week in light of new evidence -- but Gary's drug paraphernalia charge still stands.

As we previously reported, Gary got into a MASSIVE accident before he was arrested -- plowing his SUV into a parked truck.

Gary's due back in court next month for the paraphernalia charge.

Good riddance!    

Well at least they got this idiot for something and he's going to be on the knife's edge for a long time. It won't be long until he slips and a leg goes over each side.

He's a couple steps away from becoming Lindsay Lohan... I sure hope she doesn't sue me for saying that.

He has been popped for drugs several different times in various counties in the US. I believe they are still pending in a few courts, but when his "wrap sheet" gets looked at, one of the courts will NOT be happy about it.

C'mon Gary, you need to get some professional help and get your life back together. You can do it and we are all hoping you do just that.

Surprise, surprise, surprise, who would have ever
guessed they would drop some of the charges. Maybe
before it's all done, he might just walk free.

This guy is talented and good looking but, by letting him off from the charges they aren't helping him at all. Does any celebrity ever pay for the crimes that they do? No Never. It is a sad and pathetic world we live in.

He can't really be considered a "CSI Star" when he hasn't been on that show for over 3 years!!!

With a bunch of actor/models/sports figures getting released after new evidence revealed nothing happened I have to wonder if paper bags of money have been walking around. It's like that drug dealer in the one do***entary movie who says he got caught a bunch of times but because of his job had stacks of ca***** hand and offering a police officer 250,000 dollars to forget what he saw worked more times than the general public would believe. With the rumours of the Haynesworth lawyer trying to give the victim money again and again this week you have to wonder how a bunch of people got let go after the arresting officer suddenly realized he/she was on LSD or sleeping in their cruiser and dreamed that a semi-celebrity hit or attacked them.

Well that or wonder how any of these people have jobs as identifying and witnessing crimes is the main part of their job and they seem to arrest people they have seen on tv before for something that apparently never happened.
