Comedian Andy Dick was arrested by LAPD on charges of felony assault with a deadly weapon. The incident took place on Saturday, June 26, and was revealed by the police on June 29. Dick was taken into custody around 4.45 pm PT from North Mansfield Avenue in Hollywood. He was later released on a $50,000 bond on June 29. 

This, however, was not Dick's first tryst with breaking the law. He has had several run-ins with the law — ranging from drug abuse to alleged sexual battery. While speaking about his latest arrest on 'Kermit and Friends', his alleged fiancée YouTuber Elisa Jordana said, "It was just the worst week for him. It was getting worse and worse and worse. Every day there was some kind of problem. There were signs something was going to happen.” The comedian was known for starring in 'Ben Stiller Show', NBC 'NewsRadio', 'Less Than Perfect', 'Comedy Central Roasts' and MTV's 'The Andy Dick Show'.

Who did Andy Dick attack?

Jordana claimed Andy Dick was gay and had a lover named Lucas — who was actually the victim of his assault on June 26. In another part of the video, Jordana says, "I have never dated anyone in jail before," confusing viewers further about the status of her and Dick's relationship. 

Nevertheless, Jordana shed light on Andy Dick's recent behavioral issues, as she revealed that the comedian was just evicted from his home and moved into a hostel. He was even kicked out from the hostel for bringing in a large group of over 11 people. In another recent incident, Dick made obscene gestures to ask a waitress to sleep with her. He also stole cutlery, wine glass, and even plates from the same restaurant. 



 

"There are warning signs with people. It doesn’t happen out of the blue. When I heard he was in jail, I wasn’t that surprised,” adding she is glad he’s in prison because he’s safe. “We don’t have to worry that he is going to die today,” the YouTuber added. Dick was married to Ivone Kowalczyk for 4 years from 1986 to 1990 and shares a son named Lucas with her. He also has a son and a daughter with Lena Sved.

Andy Dick had been embroiled in legal issues and controversies time and again. Back in 2014, the comic ran naked through Montauk — after he reportedly tried to engage in a threesome by randomly crashing a share house and groping a woman's husband.

In 2018, he was arrested on charges of misdemeanor sexual battery for allegedly groping a woman's buttocks. The following year, he allegedly groped a driver from a ride service. He was even fired from the cast of an indie movie for accusations of groping cast and crew members. About the last incident, Dick later admitted licking someone on the cheek after kissing them goodbye. 

The 55-year-old comedian is yet to issue any statement about his latest arrest.
