HUNTINGTON — A Cabell County grand jury has indicted nationally known comedian and actor Andy Dick on two counts of felony first-degree sexual abuse, according to an indictment unsealed Wednesday in Huntington.

The charges stem from a Jan. 23, 2010, incident in which two men said the comedian groped them at Rum Runners, a nightclub at 819 3rd Ave. in Huntington. Dick was in town at the time for a series of weekend shows at the former Funny Bone Comedy Club at Pullman Square.

The South Pasadena, Calif., resident is scheduled to appear at arraignment Wednesday, July 13, before Cabell Circuit Judge Paul T. Farrell in Huntington. He remains free on a $60,000 bond. Together the allegations carry a possible two- to 10-year prison sentence.

Los Angeles attorney Mark Geragos represented the comedian one year ago when the case was argued in Cabell County Magistrate Court. He vowed in June 2010 his side would defend any grand jury indictment secured by Cabell County Prosecutor Chris Chiles.

The indictment marks just one of several run-ins with law enforcement for the 45-year-old comedian, who is perhaps best known for his role as quirky station employee Matthew Brock on the NBC sitcom “NewsRadio” from 1995 to 1999. He also once turned to Dr. Drew Pinsky on the celebrity physician’s VH1 television show “Sober House,” a spin-off of “Celebrity Rehab.”
