Andy Dick’s past arrests

This is not the first time Dick has been accused of sexual misconduct. Among several other disturbing incident over the years, the comedian was arrested in 2010 after he allegedly groped a bouncer and a patron at a bar in West Virginia. However, criminal charges were dismissed after he completed a pretrial diversion program.



 

In June last year, Dick was arrested by the LAPD on charges of felony assault with a deadly weapon after he allegedly attacked his former lover, Lucas Crawford. Back then, he had claimed that his leg was broken in the brawl. “He body-slammed my leg,” Dick had told Page Six. "My femur got broken and my ankle got shattered and the tendons and ligaments on the other side are ripped off the bone.”

At the time, Dick had reportedly just been evicted from his home and moved into a hostel. He was even asked to leave the hostel after he brought in a large group of over 11 people. In another incident back at the time, he was accused of making obscene gestures to ask a waitress to sleep with her. He also stole cutlery, wine glass, and even plates from the same restaurant.

In 2020, Dick allegedly sexually assaulted a 52-year-old woman in April. He was accused of unlawfully touching an intimate part of the victim "for the specific purpose of sexual arousal, sexual gratification, and sexual abuse", and "using force and violence upon the person of Christine S."

The same year, it was announced that Dick was going to be charged with two counts of battery for groping a young woman at an event in 2003, groping the breasts of a 17-year-old girl in 2008 and then a man in March 2018. In all three of these cases, Dick was captured on camera with his hand under the person's clothing.

Back in 1999, Dick made headlines after he drove into a utility pole while intoxicated and was charged with possession, hit-and-run driving, and driving under the influence. Between 2004 and 2005, Dick was first arrested for indecent exposure by drunkenly mooning at McDonald’s followed by another one in 2005, where he exposed his genitals to the audience at Yuk Yuk’s comedy club in Edmonton, Alberta.

In 2006, he went backstage at Comedy Central’s Roast of William Shatner and licked Farrah Fawcett, Carrie Fisher, and Patton Oswalt before turning his attention to a New York Post female photojournalist. He allegedly groped her, tried to kiss her, then proclaimed his love for her and bit her on the hand. Later, he urinated in front of her and offered her cocaine.   

Between 2005 and 2007, he was accused of groping Ivanka Trump and fondling Pamela Andreson's breasts. In 2008, a heavily intoxicated Dick grabbed and fondled the breast of a 17-year-old girl before pulling her top down in the parking lot of the Buffalo Wild Wings Grill & Bar. Police later discovered one gram of marijuana and one Xanax anti-anxiety pill in Dick's pocket. He was arrested and later released on $5,000 bail.

In 2011, Dick was accused of pulling down his pants and thrusting his scrotum against a table at the Newport Film Festival. He also allegedly urinated on a public display. In another incident, he was reportedly ejected from the AVN Awards, an adult film award ceremony, after Dick allegedly “groped and stalked” adult film actress Tera Patrick and drag queen Chi Chi LaRue. He was arrested later for rubbing his genitals on an audience member's face during a standup show, while being dressed in drag.

In 2014, Dick headed up on a bicycle to a man and stole the necklace from his neck that was worth over $1,000, an act that constituted grand theft. In 2017, he faced another sexual allegation case and was sacked from the independent film 'Raising Buchanan' because of accusations of sexual misconduct on set.
