Andy Dick's Bargain

Posted on

“NewsRadio” actor Andy Dick has asked a Los Angeles judge to consider him for a yearlong drug diversion program that could clear him of drug charges. Dick, 33, was arrested May 15 after his car hit a telephone pole near the Hollywood Bowl. Police said Dick appeared intoxicated and tried to flee. Dick had been scheduled to enter a plea Friday in answer to charges of cocaine- and marijuana-possession and hit-and-run driving. Instead, he appeared Thursday in Los Angeles Superior Court and asked to be sent to the drug program. A decision is expected to be handed down at Dick’s arraignment Aug. 12.
