Once voted as Sexiest CSI Actor by TV Guide, former CSI: Crime Scene Investigation star Gary Dourdan is back in the news after being MIA on the fame front since his departure from the hit series. E! Online reports that Dourdan was arrested at 3:50 AM Monday after allegedly plowing into multiple parked cars while behind the wheel. The 44-year-old actor was said to be walking away from the crime scene when police officers (no CSI team needed) arrived after a report of the car crash. TMZ is reporting that during the investigation, the police found "a few pills" of Ecstasy, and arrested Dourdan for drug possession. Dourdan was taken to a nearby station where he was booked and later released after posting $10,000 in bail money. Back in 2008, Dourdan narrowly avoided going to jail on a drug charge by pleading guilty and entering a drug-diversion program. In that incident, police found him asleep behind the wheel of his car, and upon investigation arrested him for possession of heroin, cocaine--and Ecstasy.

With his intense eyes, smoldering good looks, and experience playing tortured souls, Dourdan may be a shoe-in for the next season of Celebrity Rehab. That is, if he avoids the real drama of a prison sentence this time.
