Warrick Brown is the only member of the CSI team born and raised in Las Vegas. Born on October 10, 1971, to this day, Warrick has never met his father. His mother passed away when he was seven, leaving him in the care of his maternal grandmother and his Aunt Bertha. He grew up in a strict household, and that meant he kept his teenage job as a runner secret from his grandmother and aunt.
Warrick was quite literally born to live in Vegas. He loves the casinos, loves the action, and loves the pulse of the city. He can move just as easily through the Clark County Courthouse as he can through the Sports book at Hard Rock. To let off steam, he DJ’s at clubs run by his friends and writes his own songs. Spending his whole life in Las Vegas means Warrick knows at least one person in every bar, club and hotel in the city. He’s connected, and he uses those connections to move between his worlds. He went through a lot of women in his early twenties, but the first time he fell in love, the woman broke his heart.
Much to Catherine’s chagrin, as a result of Nick being buried alive, Warrick marries his girlfriend Tina, though their marriage is on shaky ground. Warrick and Tina get divorced in the beginning of season eight.
Unfortunately, in the season eight finale Warrick is shot and left for dead in his car. All through the season he was struggling with prescription drugs and the fact that a stripper he was involved with was found dead in his car. He blames a famous Las Vegas gangster, Lou Gedda, but the man is never convicted. After Gedda is found dead, Warrick is the prime suspect, being found at the crime scene covered in blood. Although he was proven innocent a long line of rotten cops leads to his death.

Warrick Brown (Gary Dourdan)

Warrick knows how all the games are played in Las Vegas and is aware of the universal truth of the city: the only one who wins consistently is the house, because the odds are stacked. Warrick’s got enough of a rebel in him to challenge those odds, and enough of a realist in him to know the only one watching out for him is him, so he’ll cut his losses to fight again another day if need be. Warrick’s specialty is
Warrick is a top CSI and has only been on his bosses' bad side when his gambling gets out of control.
