Andy Dick won't face sexual battery charge

Empty

Prosecutors said Monday that they won't charge Andy Dick with sexual battery stemming from his arrest last month.

The "NewsRadio" actor with a reputation for crude public behavior is still scheduled to face a judge this week on misdemeanor drug possession and battery charges. But he escaped felony charges after prosecutors reviewed video of the incident, Riverside County District Attorney spokesman Ryan Hightower said.

A teenage girl accused the 42-year-old actor of pulling down her top at a restaurant in Murrieta, a city about 80 miles east of Los Angeles in mid-July. Dick was arrested by officers responding to reports of an intoxicated male.

Dick is scheduled to appear in court Wednesday.
