Andy Dick arrested again

American comic Andy Dick has been arrested and accused of groping and exposing a teenage girl.

The comedian now faces charges of sexual battery, possession of a controlled substance, possession of marijuana and public intoxication.

He was picked up by police in the Californian town of Murietta just after 1am on Wednesday morning after officers responded to a report of a man urinating outside a restaurant and generally causing a disturbance.

According to the police report, 42-year-old Dick approached two girls outside the Buffalo Wild Wings restaurant. One of the girls, who is 17, claimed he pulling down her tank top and bra, exposing her breasts.

Dick, who had his own MTV show and starred in the sitcom NewsRadio, was released on $5,000 bail. Police also released a mugshot of Dick to the press, left.

Dick has a reputation for crude behaviour. Last year, he was forcibly removed from talk show Jimmy Kimmel Live after he repeatedly touched guest Ivanka Trump. HE has previously been arrested for urinating on the pavement and possession of cocaine and marijuana.
