After facing multiple allegations of sexual abuse over the years, Andy Dick has seen a precipitous drop in both his Hollywood reputation and job prospects. However, that doesn’t appear to have changed the actor in the least bit, as there is now an active warrant out for his arrest.

According to TMZ, Dick is wanted by authorities for allegedly groping the crotch of his Uber driver. The incident in question happened in Los Angeles back in April 2018, but it wasn’t until earlier this year that investigations were completed and a warrant was issued. The local District Attorney is looking to charge Dick with misdemeanor sexual battery.

As we noted before, Dick has a long and troubling history when it comes to abuse allegations. The disgraced 53-year-old comedian, known for his penchant for exposing himself, was previously charged with misdemeanor battery stemming from a 2008 incident. In 2010, he was arrested for allegedly groping a bartender and bar customer.

In addition to this Uber incident, 2018 also saw Dick charged with misdemeanor sexual battery after groping a woman on a Los Angeles street.

As Hollywood’s finally turned against him, Dick’s last TV project came two years ago with Sense8, and his last proper film, A Winter Rose, dropped in 2016. Considering he’s still backing Kevin Spacey and Harvey Weinstein, it doesn’t look like more work will be coming his way any time soon.
