Actor Gary Dourdan (pictured), who played “Warrick Brown” on the now-defunct television series “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation,” is reportedly broke and filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy on August 30, according to TMZ.
The 45-year-old performer, who has a little more than $1.8 million in assets, allegedly owes his creditors about $1.73 million.
Dourdan’s home may also wind up in default because he not only owes the bank who holds his mortgage, but he also owes several other banking institutions $1,689,704.
As far as what Dourdan has in reserve in assets, he reportedly has $200 cash, $3,000 in his bank account, $4,000 worth of furniture, a $200 collection of books, clothes valued at $1,500 and watches valued at $500. He also owns a Dodge Charger, which is six years old and a ballpark guesstimate gives it a value of about $7,000.
Unfortunately for Dourdan, his disposable income comes to a paltry $321 a month after he pays out about $14,562 a month in bills.
There is some light at the end of Dourdan’s tunnel, however, he tells TMZ that he “anticipates major acting roles” in the future which should help clear up some of his debt.
Dourdan, who was reportedly fired from his long-running CSI gig over contract disputes, was also popped back in 2008 for allegedly possessing heroin, cocaine, ecstasy, and prescription drugs. At the time, he was asleep in his car, which was pointed in the wrong direction, when police approached his vehicle and arrested him. The actor copped to coke and ecstasy possession and avoided jail time by entering a drug-diversion program.
