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."

The word "guys" in the opening line of this entry is spelled incorrectly. There's NO apostrophe because it's a plural word:
one guy/two guys. Can't TMZ hire people who are even minimally literate?????

On both WTAP (Parkersburg) and WCHS (Huntington) this was their lead story tonight. I looked on the regional jails website this morning and saw his name and mug shot. We all know he's going to get sued for this and probably some jail time too. We'll find out the 2nd on what's going to happen.

This guy needs to be castrated. He can't help himself.

here are many gay men, some famous actors, some not, who have no difficulty when, in bar, they brush or contact another mans crotch. Straight men do similar moves on well endowed women, perhaps just in a different location. Alcohol makes one loose their inhibitions. The bar employee should have laughed it off. He would have if he were a well adjusted man, gay or straight.

There's one way he can escape any jail time. If he can convince NBC to do a reality show about his time in jail, Leno will steal the show from him, and Jay would do the time. Then, everybody happy!

I think this has been blown out of proportion, probably due to the fact that it happened in the homophobic West Virginia. I don't think Andy did anything that terrible - how is it that Lindsay Lohan can get 80 minutes in jail for her second DUI (wherein she could have killed someone), and Andy faces 5 years and two felonies for groping a couple of dudes. Ridiculous.

I hate to break this to ya Andy's ok, but I'm gay and in West Virginia. So I don't think this states homophobic. There's just idiots here that are like every other state.

I'll hand it to you, SM, my post was somewhat ignorant, though I still do believe that there are higher populations of homophobic people in certain states over other states. Sorry for calling your state homophobic as a blanket statement.

My point remains the same though, this was blown out of proportion, and Andy didn't do anything that warrants two felonies against him.

Maybe he will find love in jail.
They will dress him up real pretty and trade him for smokes.

Maybe he should look in to being a new born catholic... thats popular lately.

What is his problem?? Does he want to piss off the wrong person and end up with a knife in his gut? This guy has a serious death wish; he needs like 5 years of rehab!lol No. seriously, this guy was a talented and funny guy at one time, why has he gone down the tubes?

A stunt he pulled to be on Dr. Drew's Sex Rehab due to his diminishing career.
