Gary Dourdan, who played Warrick Dunn on the original “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation,” is facing a possible foreclosure. The actor missed a July payment and owes more than $61,000 as of September, according to TMZ.
Dourdan has been facing a lot of problems lately, both financial and with the law. He originally bought the home in Venice, California in 2004 for $922,000.00.
In 2008 there was media speculation surrounding Gary’s CSI contract negotiations with CBS. The parties could not reach a resolution, and as a result his contract was not renewed. It was reported on April 14, 2008, that Dourdan was leaving the show. His character was shot and left for dead in the Season 8 finale. The premiere of Season 9 revealed Dourdan’s character dying in the arms of his colleague and friend Grissom.
Besides the foreclosure Gary has had several legal troubles he was arrested on April 28, 2008 in Palm Springs after a Palm Springs Police Department officer located “suspected cocaine, heroin, ecstasy, miscellaneous prescription drugs and paraphernalia” in his possession.
Then again, this past June, Dourdan was arrested after he crashed his vehicle into two parked cars. He was charged with drug possession and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Dourdan was arrested at his home in Venice, CA, following an alleged altercation with his former girlfriend, Nicole Vail Cannizzaro. Her nose was broken during the argument. He was charged with felony battery. After pleading not guilty the judge issued a 3 year restraining order and threatened jail time if it was violated.
Is Gary Dourdan Still Acting?
The actor is in the industry, but jobs have been minimal since his departure from CSI: Crime Scene Investigation. He portrayed Chef McKenna in the 2011 film “Jumping the Broom.”
