Comedian Andy Dick arrested for drunk in public

Actor and comedian Andy Dick was arrested early Friday in Lake Elsinore for public intoxication and failing to register as a sex offender, according to the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department.

At approximately 12:30 p.m., sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to O’Hara’s Rock & Roll Tavern on the 15700 block of Grand Avenue for a report of an intoxicated individual who may have been under the influence of drugs. The deputies encountered and arrested Dick, 57, without incident.

During a routine review of records, authorities determined that Dick, who lives in Hemet, was a sex offender whose registration had expired. He was charged with public intoxication and failing to register as a sex offender.

In November 2022, Dick was sentenced to 90 days in Los Angeles County jail after a jury found him guilty of groping an Uber driver’s genitals in West Hollywood in 2018, officials said.

After his release from prison, Dick had to register as a sex offender. As part of his probation, he was also ordered to complete 52 sessions of Alcoholics Anonymous and Sexual Coercion Anonymous sessions.

Dick, a stand-up comic and actor on the ’90s sitcom NewsRadio, has a decades-long history of arrests, many of which were related to allegations of public intoxication and assault.

In May 2022, Dick was arrested on suspicion of sexual assault after a man reported a possible assault at O’Neill Regional Park in Orange County. Prosecutors later dropped the charges after the alleged victim refused to cooperate, according to the Orange County Register.

In 2008, police responded to a report of an intoxicated person at the Buffalo Wild Wings in Murrieta, about 80 miles east of Los Angeles. They arrested Dick, who was heavily intoxicated, had marijuana and Xanax, and allegedly fondled a 17-year-old girl’s chest and pulled down her top in the restaurant’s parking lot.

He avoided crime and later pleaded guilty to drug and battery charges.

For the Lake Elsinore arrest, Dick was released on $5,000 bail. He is scheduled to appear at the Murrieta Southwest Justice Center on May 5.
