Andy Dick arrested. Again. While still on probation.

Andy dick Comedian Andy Dick is out on bail after his arrest early this morning in West Virginia on two counts of felony sexual abuse. He is accused of grabbing the crotch of a bouncer at the Rum Runners bar in Huntington.

The managing partner of the Funny Bone Comedy Club, which had hired Dick, posted the comic's $60,000 bail -- and surprise, Andy's "absolutely still on the schedule for Saturday and Sunday."

Such a shock this is, given Andy's choir-boy past.

The alcohol-monitoring bracelet he got in 2008 after pleading guilty to misdemeanor battery and pot possession -- related to the incident in which he allegedly pulled down a 17-year-old girl's tank top at a chicken wings restaurant -- was due to come off in October 2009. The probation? That wasn't due to come off for three years after the plea.

So many more things we could say here. But we won't.

If you comment, please don't cuss or we can't publish.

[For the record, 5:25 p.m., Jan. 24: A previous version of this post incorrectly called the West Virginia comedy club the Lucky Bone. It is the Funny Bone. Thanks to commenter Huntington Fact Checker for the catch./cdz]

I feel bad for Andy. I hope he sees this as a wake up call and turns his life around. There is help available, and he knows where to find it. It's in the phonebook, near the beginning of the A section.

That's what you get when you hire a discount publicist, Dick (Mr..., of course). You keep stepping into it instead getting a step ahead.

None of us were there and yet we comment on what should be done to this man who "allegedly" did these things. Maybe there was a time in your own life where you were falsly accused of something as well.

The club is actually called Funny Bone.

@Huntington Fact Checker -- Christie D'Zurilla here from the blog. Thanks for the catch. That reference is fixed now!

TMZ did a story recently about a (female)reporter grabbing David Beckham's crotch - with no consequence. The discussion afterwards was about if it were a guy doing it (to a woman) he'd be villified. Doesn't make either action right, but Andy proves the point.

@jack -- Christie D'Zurilla here from the Ministry. According to the criminal complaint in this incident, the alleged victims are male.

He's auditioning for his reality show.


Andy pulls ahead of Sheen this week.
Seriously, though, a fine and a slap on the wrist.
Seriously again, the charges could land him on a sexual predator list.
Oh Andy!

Jack..the Beckham incident happened in Italy where groping is the national pastime.

I agree with Blarfo.

Why do they throw pot possession in there like that's so bad. Pot should absolutely be legalized. Grabing a guy's crotch on the other hand that's a diuffernt story

Am I the only one thinking here, that if when he pulled down the teenagers top or grabbed the bouncers crotch, if someone (or someones) had just totally beat the holy crap out of this self-destructive train wreck, it would have done him a world of good?

The trouble with even semi-celebrity status is what they get away with. When they STOP getting away with it, or are punished for their behavior, then they become better people.
