Andy Dick arrested, charged with stealing necklace

Andy Dick again has snared some unflattering headlines. The long-troubled actor and comedian was arrested Friday near his Hollywood apartment and charged with swiping a man’s $1,000 necklace earlier in the week.

According to the police report, the Joliet West grad was riding his bicycle on Hollywood Boulevard when he saw the man wearing the chain necklace. He rode up to the guy and asked to see it. The fellow recognized Dick and agreed to let him hold it.

Then, without warning, Dick sped off with the piece of jewelry the owner valued at $1,000, the report said.

The police finally caught up with the actor several days later and booked him on a grand theft charge. After spending the night in jail, Dick posted the $25,000 bail Saturday morning and was released, according to reports.
