Andy Dick was arrested Friday night for theft. The television personality allegedly stole a man necklace while riding his bike along Sunset Boulevard. Dick reportedly spotted the man with a gold chain, approached him and asked if he could see it. The man recognized the comedian and agreed. However, Dick fled with the item. The necklace is worth $1,000.
The man filed a complaint with Los Angeles police, who found Dick riding a bike near his apartment. He was arrested, but managed to post $25,000 bail on Saturday morning.
This is the comedian's latest run in with the law. He was arrested and put on probation for drug possession and fondling a teenage girl's breasts without consent in 2008. In 2010, he was arrested once again for two counts of sexual abuse when he fondled women at Funny Bone Comedy Club in West Virginia.
Dick also has a history of substance abuse. Friends staged an intervention for the television personality in an effort to get him sober. He went to the treatment center in August 2013, but he checked out early.
He began his career as a regular on the “Ben Stiller Show.” He is best known for hosting “The Andy Dick Show,” which aired on MTV from 2001 to 2002. He has done voiceover work for Disney and Nickelodeon.
His last television stint was in “Dancing with the Stars,” where he competed with Shana Burgess as his dance partner. They finished seventh place during the Season 16 of the show. Dick also talked about his drug use on the show.
“It just is and that’s fine and I have to embrace it because it brings light to it. It’s an epidemic—drug and alcohol addiction that needs light to be shone on it,” said [H1] Dick, as published on Xfinity. “People need help. I need help and there are so many people [who need help].”
