Andy Dick Wiki, Biography
Andy Dick was arrested again on January 13, 2023. The most recent arrest occurred after officers responded to a call around 12:30 a.m. m. local time from the 15700 block of Grand Avenue, where the individual on the other end claimed the comedian was drunk.
Dick was discovered intoxicated, and as officers reviewed the records, it was discovered that the comedian was a sex offender who had not registered as of yet. An investigation was launched, after which Dick was taken to the Cois Byrd Detention Center.
The sex offender charge related to a 2018 incident in which he grabbed the private part of an Uber driver. At that time, he was sentenced to 90 days in prison.
The court ordered him to register as a sex offender and complete Alcoholics Anonymous and S*xual Compulsion Anonymous sessions along with mental health counseling sessions. In addition, he was required to pay compensation to the victim and was ordered to be released on probation for 12 months after his release.
