The troubled comedian is facing one misdemeanor count of sexual battery for allegedly groping the driver on April 12, 2018 in West Hollywood, CA.

If convicted of the charges, Dick faces a maximum sentence of 180 days in county jail.

He was accused of reaching over the seat and grabbing the driver’s crotch. The driver filed a police report shortly after the alleged incident.

Dick has been to rehab more than a dozen times and has spoken out about his attempts to stay sober.

He was hospitalized in August after he was knocked unconscious by a man who claimed Dick grabbed his genitals.

The incident took place outside a nightclub in New Orleans and Radar obtained exclusive video from the brutal beatdown.

As readers know, the comedian claimed he was “knocked out 100 percent for 15 minutes” after performing at a New Orleans Club on August 10.

On August 14, suspect David Hale was booked into the Orleans Parish Prison on second-degree battery and simple battery charges.

According to local reports, Dick, 53, was getting into a waiting Uber after his performance at the One-Eyed Jacks nightclub when Hale, 46, “sucker punched” the funnyman, who then fell into a motorcycle and hit his head on the ground.

Security video shows a person approaching Dick, then clobbering him, and brutally knocking him out with one punch.

Dick was rushed to the hospital for what was described as a “possible brain bleed.”

Robert Couvillion, who promoted the show, says he was “flabbergasted” by the vicious attack, which was completely unexpected.

“Andy was on his best behavior,” Couvillion said. “Some of his shows are a little wilder. Every show is different. This show was mostly story telling. He didn’t disrespect anyone.”
