Gary Dourdan, best known for his stint on CSI and most recently seen in Jumping The Broom, has been arrested again for drug possession. This marks the second time in three years he’s been busted. In 2008, he was apprehended on suspicion of carrying a treasure trove of illegal substances including coke, heroin, ecstasy and various prescription pills. This time, it was just ecstasy, though the circumstances surrounding his arrest were a bit stranger.

According to TMZ, Dourdan plowed his car into two parked vehicles at around 3:30 this morning in Los Angeles. Witnesses phoned the police, who searched the actor’s vehicle and found a handful of ecstasy pills. He was immediately taken into custody and released on ten thousand dollars bail.

Anyone who’s ever used drugs can tell you there’s three different types of users: those who occasionally carry, those who always carry and those who never carry. I won’t speculate on how often Dourdan carries, but this is twice now he’s been arrested in public while holding. Honestly, does anyone other than European club kids really need ecstasy at their disposal twenty-four hours a day? Isn’t that the sort of activity you plan out in advance? I’ve never been doing something random and thought, “Wow, ecstasy would really take this haircut or brunch to the next level.”

Gary Dourdan is actually a nice actor with a watchable charisma about him. His last bad decision is rumored to have cost him his role on CSI, and there’s no telling what this arrest might do for his future prospects. Here’s to hoping he starts making news for his professional life again real soon.
