(Newser) – Life imitated art for "CSI" star Gary Dourdan when he was arrested Monday in Palm Springs, Calif., for possession of cocaine, heroin, ecstasy, and prescription pills, People reports. The “disoriented” crime drama star, who plays an audio-video analyst with an addiction-addled past, was picked up by patrol officers who spotted him sleeping in his car shortly after 5am, according the police statement.

After five hours in custody, Dourdan, 41, posted $5,000 bail to await his May 28 arraignment.
