Andy Dick Arrested for Public Intoxication

Riverside County Sheriff's Department(TEMECULA, Calif.) -- Looks like Andy Dick's lengthy struggle with sobriety has hit a speed bump.

The comic and actor was arrested Monday night for disorderly conduct at a Temecula, California restaurant, reports E! Online.

A police spokesman said, "Mr. Dick was intoxicated" and had been "causing a disturbance."  Specifics of the incident are not clear, although the spokesman did say, "He was unable to care for his own safety and we arrested him for public intoxication.  He was transported to our local facility here."

Dick wasn't charged, nor will he face any legal action or pay any fines, since there was no physical confrontation.  He was released from jail when he sobered up.

Dick, who has done a stint on Celebrity Rehab, has a well-known history of substance abuse, as well as brushes with the law.  In January of last year, police in West Virginia arrested him for groping a man's crotch and repeatedly kissing him.  In 2008, he was arrested in Murrieta, California for pulling down a teenage girl's shirt.
