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."

Andy's OK Post #24 says Virginia is homophobic.
Uh Newsflash !Andy wasn't the one who was assaulted.
You're comment may be heterophobic.
Think of the victims.

Has he officially come out of the closet yet? He will feel so much better once he has...though perhaps this will help pry that door open for him.

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

Huh?? Or is that supposed to be a dig at the priests who molested boys (you know, the only profession to have molesters in it)...

He DOES need help. He needs to be put someplace where he can get the help he needs. He has been spiraling out of control since the deaths of Phil Hartman and David Strickland died. Kathy Griffin describes a standup show he did with her once that is eerily similar to this situation. It's going to keep happening until he either gets help or kills himself. I would hate to see him die before his time. He has made me laugh too many times to add him to the list of drug casualties in the comedy world (which we can all list). I really hope he gets the help he so obviously needs.

"Coming out the the closet" as they say, will only complicate his problems.
He needs "a fearless moral inventory".
He needs to be accountable to a power greater than himself.
A God who knows Him and can save Him.
He needs a relationship with God which will strengthen Him and help Him overcome the stored up unresolved emotions that propell his addictive behavior.
He needs to become born again.

This is what happens when you let the homos out of the closet

David Beckham had a security scare during a bizarre TV stunt where a presenter wearing yellow rubber gloves tried to grab his genitals.

Italian TV star Elena Di Cioccio carried out the "attack" on a stunned Beckham, 34, as part of a popular TV show called Le Iene (The Hyenas) as he gave a TV interview.

Di Cioccio ponced on the former Manchester United star who is now on loan at AC Milan saying she wanted to see "how he measured up" after it emerged he had been dropped as a Giorgio Armani underwear model by Cristiano Ronaldo.

During his two years with the Italian fashion house, England midfielder Beckham was thought to have benefited from a spot of airbrushing to accentuate his six pack — and his package.

Shortly after the campaign, in which Beckham was seen wearing a tight white pair of Armani pants, there was suspicion that he had benefited from some computer enhancement in the brief department. Although at the time his spokesman refused to comment on the reports and Armani also remained tight lipped.

Di Cioccio told viewers: "Off the pitch we have seen fascinating photographs of David Beckham in his underpants and seemingly very well endowed and even his wife says that he is well equipped and calls him Golden Balls."

"Well the image may have slipped slightly as he has been replaced in the Armani campaign by a younger footballer, Cristiano Ronaldo, but we wanted to find out if he was as well endowed as the pictures suggest or if they were touched up."

The program then cut to the outside of a smart Milan restaurant where Beckham was giving an interview to an American TV network while Di Cioccio could be seen putting on the yellow rubber gloves.

She then worked her way past the camera crew and managed to touch Beckham's testicles who jumped back with a start and looked at her stony faced before he security guards stepped in and dragged her away.

As she was led away Di Cioccio called out: "I touched it but it's small. David you have conned us all. What did you use cotton wool? It's all a trick."

An AC Milan source said: "David was not at all pleased with this stunt. He didn't know what was going on and luckily the security team stepped in and stopped her having another go."

Insiders at Le Iene said: "It was just a joke and we hope that Beckham took it in the spirit it was meant."

Le Iene is shown on Italia Uno, a TV station owned by AC Milan president and controversial Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi.

Security around Beckham has always been tight but questions will be asked as to how Di Cioccio managed to get so close — and she may well have to watch out for Victoria Beckham next time the former Spice Girl is in Milan.

A spokesman for AC Milan said: 'We are aware of the incident and we have spoken to David about it but we have no comment to make.'

On Thursday, Beckham was in training with his AC Milan teammates ahead of Sunday's crunch derby with Jose Mourinho's cross city rivals Inter — apparently none the worse following the incident.

What kind of P*SSY calls the police over something like this?! Gays do go too far sometimes but GIVE ME A BREAK. These dudes never would've called the cops on any other customer for something so stupid. They're seeing $$$$$$.

It took eight cops to arrest little Andy for a crotch grab? Guess there wasn't much crime going on in that town. Talk about overkill. Sounds like the patrons wanted to see a show, and it wasn't on the stage.
