The criminal complaint says Dick was talking with a male when he "unexpectedly and without invitation grabbed the victim's crotch, repeatedly groping then kissing him."

Dick is in West Virginia to headline a special engagement at the Funny Bone Comedy Club in Huntington Jan. 22 - 24.

This is not Dick's first run-in with the law. In 1999, Dick drove his car into a utility pole in Hollywood. He was charged with possession of cocaine, marijuana, drug paraphernalia, and driving under the influence of alcohol/drugs and hit-and-run driving.

Nine years later in 2008, Dick was arrested in Murrieta, Calif. on suspicion of drug possession and sexual battery.
