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.
