Andy Dick arrested on sexual abuse charges

Posted on

Andy Dick was arrested Saturday in West Virginia on two felony counts of sexual abuse. The comedian is currently being held in Western Regional Jail, and he is scheduled to be arraigned today. Dick’s manager did not immediately respond to calls.

The troubled comedian — who publicly battled drug and alcohol addiction on VH1’s Sober House with Dr. Drew Pinsky —  is currently on probation following his 2008 arrest on drug and battery charges.

UPDATE: Dick was in West Virginia to perform at comedy club The Funny Bone. The manager of the club says the comedian performed last night and “had never been funnier.” He says Dick is still scheduled to go on stage tonight.
