Cocaine and heroin were among the drugs allegedly found with a CSI star.

CSI: Crime Scene Investigation's Gary Dourdan (Warrick Brown) was arrested in Palm Springs, California yesterday according to ET Online. A police officer noticed his car parked on the wrong side of the road at 5:12am. Dourdan appeared to be sleeping in the driver's seat.

The officer said the actor seemed disoriented and possibly under the influence of drugs or alcohol. When the car was searched, police found what they suspect to be cocaine, heroin, ecstasy and prescription drugs. Dourdan was taken to jail, where he posted $5,000 bail and was released.

This news comes two weeks after it was announced that Dourdan would be leaving CSI. Ausiello reports that the decision to leave may not have been mutual, implying that the actor was essentially fired due to an "ongoing problem personal to Dourdan." The recent arrest for drug possession is not the actor's first run in with the law. In 2005, Dourdan was ordered to attend domestic-violence counseling, and just last year, the star was videotaped getting into a fight with a photographer from TMZ.
