Comedian Andy Dick has been arrested in Orange County on suspicions of sexual assault.

On Wednesday, Orange County Sherriff’s deputies were sent to Trabuco Canyon campground, where Dick and several others were living out of RVs and livestreaming their lives, as was first reported by TMZ.

Dick was accused of sexual battery after an adult male — who also lived in the park — alleged sexual assault, Sgt. Scott Steinle with the Orange County Sheriff’s Department, told NBC News.

The arrest was livestreamed by a YouTuber named Captain Content.

This is far from Dick’s first encounter with the law. The comedian has been subject to numerous arrests in recent years including a domestic violence charge last November, when he allegedly attacked a boyfriend with a liquor bottle.

He had also been arrested for allegedly groping a Lyft driver in 2018 and in 2010 for an incident involving a bouncer and patron at a West Virginia bar.
