Andy Dick

'He Was Really Out of It'

1/23/2010 8:17 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Andy DickOne of the guys Andy Dick is accused of sexually abusing tells TMZ he was merely doing his job when Andy grabbed him in his special place.

Phillip Daniels, a bouncer at Rum Runners in West Virginia, tells TMZ Andy Dick tried walking past him when he entered the bar, without taking a wristband. Daniels says he stopped the comedian, put the band on his wrist ... that's when Andy grabbed his crotch. Daniels tells us ...when he pulled away, Dick laughed and walked off.

Daniels tells us, "You could tell he was really out of it. He was on something."

The bouncer says someone called the cops and they showed up 20 minutes later, inquiring, "Where's the comedian?" About eight cops went to the back, Daniels says, and walked out a few minutes later with Dick in handcuffs.

Andy Dick is facing two felony counts of sexual abuse -- a male patron says Dick also groped him. If convicted, he could get five years in prison. And, Dick is also in hot water because he's on probation for another assault case in L.A.

Andy's lawyer says Andy "is stunned by these allegations" and he is "strongly denying any criminal conduct."

If these guys defended themselves they may have been charged with a hate crime.
It's good for them that He didn't push it and that they kept their cool and called the cops.

Give me a break. This is the lamest excuse for a police bust ever. What kind of bouncer gets upset and calls the cops over a friendly crotch grab?

I think he also needs to face the consequences of his actions and not be protected and coddled.
It only keeps Him in homosexual delusion
This is called enabling.
we are a society that enables people in homosexual addiction.

A man got upset that a man grabbed his crotch. I hope the next time a woman in that bar complains that a man grabbed her breasts they get just as upset!

It's funny. For a guy who gets paid for patting down mens' genitalia the bouncer sure got upset when his was patted down.

Bouncers are not paid to pat down male genitalia.
That would cause so many guys to fly into a rage.
Why don't people understand that there are tons of young men who are dealing with the rage and humiliation of being sexually exploited?
They're not encouraged to talk about it so they bury it and it leads to low self esteem,shame and addictive behavior (including homosexual addiction-reinacting the incident in order to prevail.
Being attacked sexually by another man is degrading.
It's not OK or funny for a man or woman to be taken advantage of.

Sounds like Andy's got a perfect alibi...the cops asked "where's the comedian," and someone pointed to Andy. I don't care what the crime, there's no way Andy could ever possibly be considered "a comedian."

Should he have even been in a bar while on probation. One condition of probation is not to be in a facility where alcohol is served. There's a reason for that.

Well TMZBoy ,it's a fact that young men who are sexually abused tend to withdraw socially,tend to think they were complicit,have great bouts with shame and rage for lack of resolve and good therapy.
This does great damage to a young man's identity especially in his formative years as he goes into the false identity that keeps the emotions from being processed.
Then there's the other school of thought that compounds the problem.They say You are who You feel You are and that to disagree with them is hate.
i see these people as anti intellectual and repressive to therapy.
