Dick has had multiple run-ins with the law, including two misdemeanor charges in 2019 for sexual battery and simple battery, per TMZ. According to online records obtained by E! News, he was sentenced to 14 days in jail but was released after one night. TMZ reports the sentencing came after he didn't complete his court-ordered community service.

Dick has also faced sexual misconduct allegations and was reportedly fired from the film Raising Buchanan in 2017 after being accused of sexual harassment. Sources told The Hollywood Reporter at the time that he was accused of groping and unwanted kissing. Dick denied the claims, telling the outlet, "I didn't grope anybody" and "I didn't grab anybody's genitals."
