LOS ANGELES — Los Angeles police have arrested comedian Andy Dick on suspicion of grand theft.

The arrest of the former “NewsRadio” actor happened late Friday night in Hollywood.

The celebrity gossip website TMZ.com, which first reported the arrest, said Dick allegedly stole the necklace of a man he encountered on Hollywood Boulevard last week.

Police saw Dick riding his bike Friday night and made the arrest.

Dick posted bail early Saturday morning. A call to his agent was not immediately returned.

In addition to “NewsRadio,” Dick briefly had his own program on MTV and has had roles in several movies, including “Dude, Where’s My Car?” and “Old School.”

He’s had several mostly minor run-ins with police. He was arrested most recently in 2011 on suspicion of being drunk-and-disorderly in a California restaurant.
