On Wednesday May 11, police from the Orange County Sheriff’s Department were called to O’Neill Regional Park, where they surrounded the RV trailer where Dick, 56, was located. The call to the police came after an adult male who goes by the name of “JJ” claimed the comedian had sexually assaulted him.

It was gathered that around the 3:10 mark of a clip from the livestream, a disoriented “JJ” can be heard telling another person in the recreational vehicle what he claims occurred. He said;

 “I was just in bed right now, and I smelled certain parts of my body … [I was] in the other RV with Andy, and … the last thing I remember, we were on the phone with his fiancée … I smelled parts of myself and they smell like artificial smells.”

The streamer then alleged that he thought he had lotion or lube-like substance in his butt.  Around the 5:29:00 mark of the original livestream, “JJ” attempts to confront Dick, but the comedian appears more concerned with his drugs.

“Did you take my cocaine?” he asks the streamer, who replies, “No, I didn’t even take it whenever it was offered.”

“JJ” then asks, “Why did you assault me in my sleep?” to which Dick responds, “I never assaulted you in your sleep. Can you leave me alone?”

Despite Dick’s on-camera denial, Sgt. Steinle told Page Six that they took the “Andy Dick Show” star into custody based on “information that was given to them” from the alleged male victim when they arrived on the scene. Police also performed an onsite investigation.
