Andy Dick Arrested For Sexual Abuse

Ht_dick_100123_ssv Andy Dick was arrested and charged with two felony counts of sexual abuse in West Virginia over the weekend.  Court documents say he's accused of grabbing a bouncer's crotch and groping and kissing a male patron at a bar in Huntington, West Virginia.  Magistrate Patty Verbage Spence set bail at $60,000.  The owner of the comedy club Andy was in town to preform at posted bail.

A press release from the Huntington Police Department says: "Based upon statements of two victims and independent witness accounts alleging that he had engaged in unwanted and uninvited groping of the two victims' genital areas, Andrew R. Dick (AKA Andy Dick) of South Pasadena, Calif., was arrested and charged with two counts of Sex Abuse in the First Degree."

Andy's attorney, Jeff Rubinstein, issued a statement that said "Andy is stunned by these allegations and we are strongly denying any criminal conduct."  Another hearing is set for February 2, 2010 and Andy is facing up to 5 years in prison.  Andy is also on probation for another sexual assault case, so he could be facing back time in that case as well.

The bouncer in question, Phillip Daniels, said "you could tell he was really out of it. He was on something."  He alleges Andy grabbed his junk when he was trying to put a wrist band on him.  He works at a bar called Rum Runners.

The thing I find most shocking about these allegations is that Andy was in Huntington to perform at the Funny Bone Comedy Club.  People would pay money to see him?  People find him funny?  Really?

Yeah..I live in Huntington and from eyewitness accounts of patrons at Rum Runners, it didn't go down that way. It was more of, "OMG CELEBRITY! Yes you can touch me! Oh wait...maybe that was a bad idea." I find it more embarassing that, in his friday act at the Funny Bone, he dropped his clothes and performed the last part of his act showcasing a mangina.

He did basically the same thing in Edinboro, PA (where I used to live) a few years ago. Differences- he was appearing in a student film, the crotch he grabbed was a local jock's in a regular old bar, the cops didn't make a big deal out of it. And he was definitely drunk off his ASS. I think this is just a regular ol' weekend for Andy, honestly.

He has always given me the creeps. It looks like that was a legitimate feeling.

What is he famous for? The only other time I've heard of him was when he appeared on Trading Spaces. I thought he was creep because he kept drawing childish pictures of cats taking a dump.
