When celebs are busted they are treated to having their mug shot plastered all over television and now the web, which ensures that it will travel around the globe within seconds. It has been a couple rough years in celebrityville where stars are now be actually made to do time for their crimes(i.e Keifer Sutherland).
Still the difference between jail time celebs face and the general public is still striking, if not grossly lopsided. CSI star Gary Dourdan has been busted for suspicion of basically have a portable drug pharmacy in his possesion.
ABC News got the scoop below:
It’s like a storyline from his show, but it won’t be over in 60 minutes.
“CSI” star Gary Dourdan (born Gary Robert Durdin) was arrested in Palm Springs, Calif. early Monday on suspicion of possessing heroin, cocaine, ecstasy and prescription drugs, according to a statement from the Palm Springs Police Department. Dourdan was sleeping in a car parked on the wrong side of the street when police found him. After booking, he was released on $5,000 bail.
Dourdan’s publicist was not immediately available for comment.
Dourdan has played investigator Warrick Brown on the CBS crime drama since it began in 2000. In July 2007, TMZ.com reported that he attacked a photographer outside a Los Angeles club, slamming him into the pavement several times before chasing him from the scene.
My question is why some many different highly addictive drugs? Any one of them is enough to derail a career permanently.And what would be the consequences if a regular joe was caught with the equivalent of a what Mr. Dourdan alledgedly had in his possesion.
