Andy Dick Arrested For Grand Theft After Stealing Necklace While Riding A Bike In Los Angeles

Andy Dick has been arrested.

The 48-year-old comedian was reportedly tracked down on Friday (Nov. 7) by the Los Angeles police after stealing a necklace worth $1,000.

According to TMZ, the actor was out for a bike ride on Hollywood Blvd. last week when he spotted a man wearing the chain in question. Dick asked the man if he could see the necklace.

The man obliged Andy's request after recognizing the actor. However, the "NewsRadio" star allegedly sped away on his bike, taking the necklace with him.

The owner of the $1,000 necklace reported it missing but the police could not locate the actor.

However, the authorities tracked the actor down on Friday at 11:10 p.m. near his Hollywood apartment. Dick was allegedly riding his bike when police finally arrested him.

The star was charged with grand theft and is currently in jail. He posted his $25,000 bail at 5 a.m. on Saturday morning. He is reportedly due in court on December 4.  

Dick has had his share of run-ins with the law in the past. In 2012, the actor was arrested on charges of sexual abuse for allegedly groping a bartender and bar patron in West Virginia. Dick pled not guilty and the charges were eventually dropped.

In 2008, Dick plead guilty to misdemeanor battery and marijuana possession after reportedly grabbing the tank top of a 17-year-old female and exposing her chest.

Prior to those incidents, Dick was arrested for indecent exposure in 2004 and hit-and-run driving, as well as cocaine possession, after an episode in 1999.   

Dick has yet to comment on this latest incident. However, he hasn't posted on Twitter since mid-August, so don't look for him to address the arrest on social media.
