Troubled comedian Andy Dick was arrested over the weekend for assault with a deadly weapon, the Los Angeles Police Department has confirmed to Page Six.
Elisa Jordana revealed the brutal incident on her YouTube show “Kermit and Friends” this week, saying Dick attacked his lover Lucas with a metal chair. “He could have killed him,” she said.
She suggested that Lucas – whose last name was not immediately known – be taken to Cedars-Sinai Hospital. “I’ve seen pictures, I’ve seen videos; it’s not good,” she said.
The LAPD confirmed to us that Dick, 55, was arrested on June 26.
Jordana went on to describe Dick – who had a lot of problems with substance abuse and breaking the law – getting out of control easily and becoming “very aggressive” when drunk.
“It’s getting worse and worse,” she said. “Every day there are issues. There are signs that something is going to happen.”
According to Jordana, Dick had just been kicked out of the house and moved into a hotel, although she said he was kicked out shortly after taking 11 people.
Jordana described another recent incident in which Dick told a waitress in obscene language that he wanted to sleep with her and took things from the restaurant. “He stole cutlery, he stole wine glasses, he stole plates,” she said. “He asked for a dog bag so he could put everything in it.”
She also said he recently called her to ask her to go to another restaurant where he was eating with friends because they didn’t have the money to pay the bill.
“People have warning signs. It doesn’t happen suddenly. I wasn’t surprised when I heard he was in jail,” Jordana said, adding she was glad he was in jail because he was safe. “We don’t have to worry about him dying today,” she said.
