Oh Andy Dick, you’re backsliding again. Just when you think this guy might be okay, he pulls another stunt. He’s been arrested again, in Hollywood, this time for suspicion of felony grand theft, which is a fancy way of saying he stole an expensive necklace. More from E!:
According to People magazine, the 48-year-old troubled actor and comedian is accused of stealing a necklace last week. He was reportedly riding a bicycle in town and stopped next to a man, asking him if he could look at his chain. The man agreed and handed over the necklace, reportedly worth $1,000, and the allegedly actor rode off with it. The man then reported the incident to police, according to the magazine.
Dick was arrested in a well-trafficked area of Hollywood, located near many nightclubs, on Friday at 11:10 p.m., according to police records. He was detained on suspicion of felony grand theft, a spokesperson told E! News. The actor was released at 5:20 a.m. on Saturday after a $25,000 bond was posted. Dick has a Dec. 4 court date.
If convicted, he could be sentenced to a maximum punishment of three years in state prison. If he ends up being charged with a misdemeanor, it drops to one year.
The article also goes on to say it’s “unclear” if Mr. Dick was “under the influence” at the time of his arrest. I’m betting he was.
Listen, it may sound crazy, but I was rooting for the guy. I really liked him on Dancing with the Stars. He showed a shitload of remorse for his errant ways and behavior, and really endeared himself to the audience. But he’s just throwing that out the window, and I don’t know how much longer I can root for him.
This whole story is so bizarre. Who the hell grabs someone’s necklace and takes off on a bicycle? Worst jewel thief ever.
Are YOU rooting for Andy Dick? Or are you just totally over him?
