Comedian Andy Dick was charged with two counts of felony sexual abuse in West Virginia on Saturday. Dick was arraigned on Saturday afternoon by a Cabell County Magistrate Court. The charges stem from an incident at a bar called Rum Runners in which Dick is accused of grabbing a bouncer’s crotch and groping a male club patron. Bail was set at $60,000 for the comedian who is due back at court on February 2nd for a preliminary hearing.
The present sexual abuse charges are not Dick’s first legal troubles. The Hollywood comedian is presently on probation from a July 2008 incident in which Dick was accused of pulling the shirt of a teenage girl exposing her breasts. Dick pleaded guilty to drug and sexual battery charges arising out of that incident. Dick was also arrested in 1999 for possession of cocaine and marijuana.
