Comedian Andy Dick was arrested on sexual battery charges

Law enforcement in California arrested Andy Dick Wednesday after he was charged with sexual assault, the latest incident involving the comedian in a long list of controversies.

The Orange County Sheriff’s Department took Dick into custody after responding to a Wednesday morning report from a man alleging the comedian sexually assaulted him, law enforcement told both of them TMZ and Rolling Stone. According to TMZ, the arrest appeared to have been streamed live on a YouTube account that broadcasts from the RV campsite where Dick allegedly lived. (Watch the video above.)

The man’s name was not released and officers arrested Dick in Orange County Jail on battery sex offender charges. He is currently in custody on $ 25,000 bail and will appear in court on Friday, according to the sheriff’s department website.

The department did not immediately respond to HuffPost’s request for a copy of the police report and information relating to Dick’s arrest.

Last month, officers carried out a welfare check at a home Dick was staying in in Las Vegas after a man who was also drew a gun during an argument in a live stream. TMZ had reported. The actor reportedly told authorities that he was fine and that he wanted to stay.

Dick, who appeared on the 90s sitcom “NewsRadio,” has already been charged with sexual assault. In June 2018, the Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office filed a crime report of sexual drums and simple drums after a woman said he grabbed her buttocks twice and made lewd comments as he walked beside her.

In October 2017, Dick was fired from a movie after being accused of non-consensual groping, kissing and licking of colleagues. He was also accused of having sexually proposed at least four members of the production.

Dick denied groping his colleagues, but admitted to licking them and proposing them sexually, telling The Hollywood Reporter that his “middle name is ‘misconduct’” and that his colleagues “know what they signed up for.”

In 2007, Dick had to be dragged off stage in “Jimmy Kimmel Live” after having felt Ivanka Trump several times live on TV and ignored signals from Trump and Kimmel to stop the behavior. Kimmel told “Extra” after the incident that Dick didn’t apologize for his behavior and made the late night host “uncomfortable.”
