According to People, the actor who was arrested April 28th was charged with three counts of drug posession after police spotted the CSI star sleeping in his car on the wrong side of the street. “As a result of today’s proceedings, Gary has been given diversion (a drug treatment program),” his lawyer, Shawn Chapman Holley said outside the Lawson Justice Center. “He very much regrets what happened and he’s very embarrassed by what occurred, but he’s looking forward to moving on and getting back to work.” Dourdan avoided a maximum sentence of three years and eight months based on the charges filed against him, he instead faces no jail time but will complete a 16-class drug treatment program. The popular actor who also played Jack Van Adams on “Soul Food” a few years back is slated to appear in a French horror film entitled “Black Jack,” where he plays an American soldier who parachutes into a French village exposed to chemical warfare during World War II.
