Gary Dourdan was recently found asleep in his car in Palm Springs, CA. Soon after, narcotics were found in his vehicle. Although he claimed they were not his, he recently pleaded guilty to all the charges that were not dropped. The charge of possession of heroin was dropped, but not for the possession of exstacy or cocaine. His lawyer, Shawn Chapman Holley, says he is entering a treatment program, but the program is not technically rehab. Rather, he will spend 30 hours of classes that meet once a week. Having completed the program, his charges will be dismissed. At the time of this story, Dourdan had already enrolled, wasting no time at all.
If you missed the original story (the link at the bottom of this article), CSI star Gary Dourdan was arrested while passed out in his car in Palm Springs, CA. Found in the car with him was cocaine, ecstacy, and heroin. He was arrested promptly. Now, the CSI star speaks out about the event and what followed in an email to Access Hollywood. Here is an excerpt of that email:
“Obviously I certainly wish I hadn’t been responsible for so many people getting to the festival’s VIP area,” Dourdan wrote, referring to California’s annual Coachella music festival, which he regularly attends. “And the after party, it ran me ragged, but I’m glad pulling over did prevent a DUI. I recommend not driving at all, but a little kip (nap) is always good (on either side of the road.”
“I am blessed that the Sgt. realized that the luggage carrying whatever they found was not mine and that my tests have been coming back negative. I’ve been happy to cooperate in any way to clear myself and go on with my blessed life.”
Says Douchebag: “I am so sorry to all my fans, especially the young ones, like Taylor Swift, who I should’ve been supporting with my daughter instead of driving tired in the desert,” he wrote. “I am planning events to get the word out that you don’t need a bunch of nasty chemicals to have a good time. Just good friends, family, good music and a good honest spirit full of faith.”

A company in Georgia s trying to replace DNA testsing with a means of finding out much of the same information. It would be a great tool for detectives, forensic experts and the military. No one expects it to replace DNA analysis, and representatives of the company suggest it is not meant to.
The new method analyzes antibodies. Each person has a unique antibody bar code that can be taken from blood, saliva or other bodily fluids. Antibodies are proteins used by the body to fend off viruses or otherwise clean the system.
The scientists say an antibody profile can yield results faster and more cost-affectively and be performed in the field with minimal training. National lab administrators have licensed the technology exclusively to Identity Sciences LLC in Alpharetta, Georgia.
CSI’s Gary Dourdan was busted in Palm Springs yesterday on suspicion of possessing heroin, cocaine, ecstasy and prescription drugs. Sources have said the actor was found sleeping in his car at 5:21 AM as police approached the vehicle and made the bust.
Apparently, Dourdan then spent time in Palm Springs jail and eventually posted $5,000 and bailed out.
