    Andy Dick Arrested for Sexual Abuse

    At least this mug shot isn't as creepy as the last one.

    Perpetually troubled funnyman Andy Dick was arrested in West Virginia Saturday morning on two felony charges of first-degree sexual abuse, the Huntington Police Department confirms to E! News.

    Police are keeping the details under wraps, due to the ongoing investigation, but the comedian is expected to be arraigned early this afternoon. Dick is in West Virgina for six scheduled performances throughout the weekend at the Funny Bone Comedy Club, and according to a club rep, Saturday night's show will go on.

    "He had two shows last night and dominated, he was on fire," Funny Bone manager Tom Schaefer tells E! News. "The best I've ever seen him."

    Dick was reportedly celebrating his sobriety early Friday, but a source who was with the actor throughout the day says that by the end of the night, the former Celebrity Rehab castoff had fallen off the wagon.

    Officers responded to a call at Rum Runners nightclub, where two victims, a bartender and clubgoer, as well as several witnesses, alleged Dick "engaged in unwanted, and uninvited groping of the two victims genital areas," according to a statement from the Huntington PD.

    Dick's newest legal woes come while he's on probation for a similar crime, following a 2008 arrest for allegedly exposing himself to and groping a teenage girl.

    The actor avoided jail time but was sentenced to three years' probation, a portion of which he needed to wear a SCRAM ankle bracelet to detect any drug and alcohol use.
