Andy Dick Arrested For Stealing Necklace
Andy Dick was arrested on Friday for stealing a man’s $1,000 necklace. The incident occurred last week, when the actor and comedian was riding his bicycle down Hollywood Boulevard in Los Angeles and spotted the pricey jewelry. Dick rode up to the stranger and asked if he could examine the man’s necklace before allegedly swiping it and riding off.
The man reported the theft with police, but Dick could not be found at the time. When cops saw the star near his apartment on Friday, again on his bicycle, they arrested him. Dick was taken into custody and charged with grand theft. TMZ reports that he is still behind bars, waiting to make $25,000 bail.
Dick has had a long and infamous history of legal problems. In the past 15 years, he’s been arrested for alleged crimes including drug possession, indecent exposure, sexual battery, and sexual abuse. Many of the incidents have involved inappropriate contact with someone in a public setting, although the pattern has been overtly sexual behavior rather than theft. Dick’s camp has not yet commented on Friday’s arrest. Gossip Cop will have updates.
