The investigation into Andy Dick’s felony sex abuse charges are ongoing so police are keeping details under wraps, but the comedian was arrested in West Virginia.
The comedian is in West Virgina for six-scheduled performances this weekend at the Funny Bone Comedy Club, and, according to a club rep, Saturday night’s show will go on.
“He had two shows last night and dominated, he was on fire,” Funny Bone manager Tom Schaefer revealed, “the best I’ve ever seen him.”
Dick was reportedly celebrating his sobriety early Friday but by the end of that evening the comedian had gotten drunk.
Police were called to Rum Runners nightclub, where two victims, a bartender and clubgoer, as well as several witnesses, alleged Andy Dick “engaged in unwanted, and uninvited groping of the two victims genital areas,” according to a statement from the Huntington PD. “
Andy Dick is currently on probation after his 2008 arrest for similar charges.
In the 2008 case, Dick avoided jail time but was sentenced to three years’ probation, a portion of which he needed to wear a SCRAM ankle bracelet to detect any drug and alcohol use.
