Andy Dick upped the ante in the creepy-celebrity-mug-shot hall of fame around 2 a.m. this morning when he was arrested outside a Buffalo Wild Wings in Murrieta, California, and charged with suspicion of sexual battery, possession of a controlled substance, possession of marijuana and public intoxication.
According to a press release from the Murrieta Police Department, an “extremely intoxicated” Dick, 42, was arrested after police were called to the restaurant on a call of a disturbance by an intoxicated man urinating outside the building. When they arrived, they saw a truck leaving the scene and stopped it.
An LAPD spokesperson said a 17-year-old woman told them that Dick had left the restaurant, walked up to her and pulled down her tank top and bra, exposing her breasts. Dick’s friends then escorted the comedian to the truck, which was stopped a short distance away. Police lined up the men in the truck along the curb, and the alleged victim and a witness picked Dick out as the assailant.
After searching his pockets, police said they found marijuana and the anti-anxiety drug Xanax in his pockets. According to the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department, Dick was released on $5,000 bond and ordered to return to court on August 12. The latest legal problem for Dick is a kind of greatest-hits rehash of his past run-ins with the law, which include: a citation for urinating in public in Columbus, Ohio, last year (during a stint at a comedy club where he was reportedly intoxicated and groped some of the patrons); a 2004 arrest for indecent exposure outside a McDonald’s; an incident last year when he was booted from “Jimmy Kimmel Live” for repeatedly touching the breasts of guest Ivanka Trump without her permission; and a 1999 arrest for possession of cocaine and marijuana after his arrest for driving his car into a telephone pole in Hollywood.
A spokesperson for the Murrieta Police Department could not be reached for comment at press time.
