(Newser) – Funnyman Andy Dick was arrested on sexual abuse charges early this morning in Huntington, West Virginia, where he was scheduled to appear this weekend at a comedy club. The 44-year-old with a history of bad-boy behavior on tour was charged with 2 felony counts, the Herald-Dispatch reports, and was being held in jail until his arraignment later today.

The criminal complaint says Dick was speaking to a man when he "unexpectedly and without invitation grabbed the victim's crotch, repeatedly groping then kissing him," reports TMZ. A police statement says a second victim is involved: The arrest is "based upon statements of two victims and independent witness accounts alleging that he had engaged in unwanted and uninvited groping of the two victims' genital areas."
