Gary Dourdan's Bankruptcy Filing: 'CSI' Star In Tough Financial Spot

Gary Dourdan was once a star on the most popular show on television, but now the "CSI" actor claims he is bankrupt.

Dourdan, who starred on "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation," filed for bankruptcy in August, TMZ reported on Monday. According to documents, the 45-year-old actor has $1.8 million in assets, but owes $1.73 million. A large chunk, specifically $1,689,704, is owed to various banks, one of which holds his mortgage.

Despite having starred on eight seasons of CBS' Emmy Award-winning "CSI," Dourdan claims his monthly disposable income is just $321, according to TMZ. He allegedly makes $14,883 per month, but $14,562 goes to bills. He "anticipates major acting roles" in the future, however, which will help him pay off his debt.

The bankrupt Dourdan filed an injunction on Aug. 30 to prevent Wells Fargo from putting his Venice, Calif., home up for auction, CBS 42 reported. That same day, he filed bankruptcy papers.

His financial issues first surfaced in 2010 when he was sued over credit card debt, according to CBS 42.

Bankruptcy is not Dourdan's only run-in with the legal system.

Last November, the former "CSI" star was arrested on felony battery charges for allegedly breaking his girlfriend's nose. He pled not guilty.

In June 2011, Dourdan was arrested for drug possession after getting into a major car accident, TMZ previously reported. The charges were eventually dropped. His involvement with drugs stems back to 2008, when he was arrested for possession of cocaine, heroin, ecstasy, miscellaneous prescription drugs and paraphernalia, according to the Associated Press.
