Dick was arraigned Saturday afternoon in Cabell County Magistrate Court.

Court documents claim he was at a bar in Huntington, about an hour west of Charleston, when he allegedly grabbed a bouncer's crotch and kissed and groped a male patron early in the morning. His bail is set at $60,000.

"Andy is stunned by these allegations and we are strongly denying any criminal conduct," Dick's attorney, Jeff Rubenstein, said in a statement.

On his Twitter page, Dick said "there are two sides to every story. please reserve judgement (sic) until you hear mine. thank you."

Magistrate Patty Verbage Spence set a Feb. 2 hearing for Dick, 44, who was in town to perform at the Funny Bone Comedy Club. Funny Bone managing partner Tom Schaefer posted Dick's bail and said Dick is "absolutely still on schedule for Saturday and Sunday."

The funny man is currently on probation for sexual battery after an incident
in 2008 when he allegedly pulled down a 17-year-old's shirt and bra.
