Actor and comedian Andy Dick was charged with public intoxication and failure to register as a sex offender on Friday, authorities said.

Dick, 57, was taken into custody without incident in Lake Elsinore, about 70 miles southeast of Los Angeles, after a report of an intoxicated person, the Riverside County Sheriff’s Office said.

Jail records show he was booked just before 1am and released about two hours later.

Dick did not immediately respond to a request for comment, nor did an attorney who previously represented him.

Dick was charged with sexual assault in Orange County last year, though he was never charged and authorities said the apparent victim was uncooperative.

A lawyer representing Dick in the case, Daniel Kapelovitz, called the case “totally fake” and said at the time that his client is often falsely accused.

In a separate case, Dick was accused of groping a driver in West Hollywood in April 2018. He pleaded not guilty, but was sentenced by a jury to 90 days in prison last year, the Los Angeles Times reported.

As part of the case, Dick had to register as a sex offender and complete 52 sessions of Alcoholics Anonymous, according to the Times.

Jail records show he was released on December 23.
