Andy Dick to stand trial on W.Va. sex abuse counts

July 29, 2011 12:00:00 AM PDT
Andy Dick has been ordered to stand trial on felony sexual abuse charges stemming from a 2010 nightclub incident.

A West Virginia judge set the trial date for Jan. 17 and ordered Dick to submit to a urine test. Judge Paul Farrell told him if he returns to court under the influence of drugs, he will be jailed.

Dick told the judge he's sober.

The entertainer is accused of grabbing a bouncer's crotch and groping and kissing a male patron at a Huntington bar. He was in town for a performance.

Dick, who remains free on bail, has previously been arrested in California on drug and battery charges. A Texas man is suing him, claiming the performer exposed his genitals at a Dallas performance.
