Actor Andy Dick Arrested For Felony Theft Of Necklace

Actor and comedian Andy Dick was arrested in Hollywood on a single charge of felony theft and released early Saturday on $25,000 bail.

The actor was arrested on a charge of grand theft on Friday and booked into Los Angeles County Jail, with a court date set for December 4, the Chicago Tribune reported.

The Los Angeles Police Department has not given any details of his arrest, although entertainment website TMZ said Dick was accused of stealing a $1,000 necklace from a man’s neck. Grand theft is the unlawful taking of another’s property with a value of more than $950.

The former Dancing with the Stars contestant was allegedly riding his bike last week when he rode up to a man and asked if he could see his chain. The man, recognizing Dick, gave him the jewelry, which the actor then allegedly rode off with, TMZ reported.

Dick has had a battle with substance abuse and he was previously found guilty of battery and drug possession, People magazine reported. His run-ins with the law have also included a guilty plea to cocaine and marijuana possession in 1999 and he was reportedly on probation for sexual assault in 2008 after he was arrested in Riverside County on suspicion of pulling down the top of a 17-year-old girl in a restaurant. In 2010, he was arrested in West Virginia and charged with two counts of sexual abuse after he allegedly grabbed men’s crotches in a bar.

Andy Dick has appeared on numerous shows and movies, including the reality show “Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew,” and, more recently, he starred in the comedy series “NewsRadio.”
