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]
