Andy Dick pled "not guilty" today on charges of sexual battery and simple battery, RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned.

A spokesman for the L.A. City Attorney’s Office, Frank Mateljan III, told Radar about Dick's July 18 plea and added that his case was put over for pre-trial on August 15 in Van Nuys, California.

As Radar has previously reported, the troubled comedian, 52, was accused of groping a stranger while on a public street in Los Angeles.

Dick's female accuser claimed he “squeezed her butt twice as he walked past her on a sidewalk back in April. She also said he made lewd comments.”

The alleged incident was the latest apparent low in Dick's controversial life which has included numerous bizarre incidents.

The controversial funnyman has previously suffered from alcohol and drug abuse, and has often been bashed for his sexually inappropriate actions. His wild boozing even earned him a five-year restraining order from wife Lena Sved.

In 2017, he was fired from an independent film after he was accused of “groping people’s genitals, unwanted kissing/licking and sexual propositions of at least four members of the production.”

Though he denied the groping, he admitted he might’ve licked and kissed somebody on the cheek. “That’s my thing–I licked Carrie Fisher at a roast. It's me being funny,” he said at the time.

He also once groped Ivanka Trump on the Jimmy Kimmel Live show!

A rediscovered video posted on YouTube recently showed that Ivanka and Dick were guests on comedian Kimmel's late night ABC talk show in 2007, years before her dad Donald would become President of the United States.

As Kimmel chatted with Ivanka on air, funnyman Dick began to touch the Donald's bombshell daughter, and she told Kimmel, "I have no idea what he's doing."

Dick stroked her thigh, saying he saw glitter on it, and Kimmel wound up summoning security to eject the actor off the talk show.

In April, Dick told fans he was heading back to rehab.

Now, he has court issues to deal with!
