Andy's Dick: Trees Patron Sues Comic, Club Six Months Later For "Offensive Physical Contact"

AndyDickatTrees.JPG
The incident that led to a lawsuit. The whole video's after the jump.
From the looks of the video on the other side, I'm surprised the whole audience at Trees didn't sue following Andy Dick's "performance" on December 19. But, no, it's just the one guy: Robert Tucker, who says he didn't much appreciate it when the former star of NewsRadio "forced his genitals against the left side of Plaintiff's head."

Courthouse News directs our attention this morning to a suit filed Tuesday in Dallas County District Court, in which Tucker's taking on not only Dick, but also United Talent Agency and the club, claiming, among other things, "offensive physical contact," "intentional infliction of emotional distress" and "defamation by conduct." Here's how Tucker's personal-injury attorney, Christoper Coats of The Moore Law Firm (where they "Strike Fast, Hit Hard"), says it all went down:
As Andy Dick walked through the audience, he approached where Plaintiff was seated, and Plaintiff asked Andy Dick for his autograph. Andy Dick told Plaintiff to "hold on a minute" and pulled a barstool next to Plaintiff. Andy Dick then grabbed Plaintiff's head and shoulders to raise himself on top of the barstool. Andy Dick then took control of Plaintiff's head with his left hand and pulled down his costume skirt with his right hand, exposing the fact that he was not wearing underwear beneath the skirt. Defendant Dick then, while still controlling Plaintiff's head wth his hand forced his genitals against the left side of Plaintiff's dace. Plaintiff immediately pulled away. Andy Dick returned to the state with the help of Defendant's employees.
But why read it when you can watch it for yourself after the jump. A couple of months back someone posted eight minutes' of crystal-clear footage from the show, and The Incident begins to unfold at around the three-minute mark. Looks like it was well-documented too. Of course, Dick's attorney always has a good defense: "Your Honor, my client's a mess."

If you are going to write a column, why don't you use spell check before publishing??? Other than that I think Mr. Dick is probably screwed but it is not his first run-in with the law.

I didn't see any genital contact at all. It was close but no teabag!! Why exaggerate like that? I'm not saying it wasn't wrong, but there was no contact as alleged. That case is going to have issues. Of course there is still the case of his junk being out in public. Not sure how legal that is if it isn't actually in a strip club.

I feel soory for Andy.When he was sober in Rehab with Dr. Drew, he seemed like a really nice guy. He has a lot of problems and needs help for them. Get your Sh-t together Andy.

Really?  This is just lame.  Anybody here ever heard of Lenny Bruce?  This is 2011, folks.  Andy's a brilliant comedian, though his stuff isn't everyone's cup o' tea.  If you went to a hip-hop concert, wouldn't you expect to hear offensive lyrics?  Why would anyone go to an Andy Dick show, and then whine about his material?  It's Andy Dick...everybody knows his schtick.  But the worst thing is people wishing him dead.  Look in the mirror, and ask yourselves how YOU'D feel if someone who didn't even KNOW you, wished you dead.  Unbelievably hateful.

Wait, they were in Texas, so why didn't that big ol' hoss bust that scrawny maggots ass. He should have sent him sailing off that bar stool and stomped him for good measure. What is happening to Texas where they will tolerate that type of shit? He would have gotten the shit stomped out of him if he pulled that shit in the past.

I can't imagine anyone thinking that this freak was enjoyable to watch, hear, think about or even momentarily acknowledge that he exists in the first place. Why don't we do the world a favor and lock this freak in a cold dark room where he can be as much of a scumbag as he wants to be and the world doesn't need to hear about it.

The EMH Mark II's personality matrix was obviously damaged. Why didn't they reboot him? Damned holograms.

He went to see Andy.....dick.  Well obviously he saw it close up and personal. I don't see him protesting do you?

I'm surprised none of the other 4 people at Dick's show intervened when things got so out of control.

A cheap way to make money......Why would a person plead such innocence who paid to see Andy Dick??????? Too bad for Trees......not enough music venues in Dallas.

What's the problem?  This is urban grit.  Edgy.  Dallas is edgy - Deep Ellum is super edgy.  If you don't like guys putting their junk in your face, then move to the freakin' suburbs!

 No meat on the bone here. Dick didn't even touch his head. And, are you telling me that O-line sized patron had trouble with Dick physically? The whole thing seems fruitless.

I guess we can all look forward to another farewell night before Trees has to close again because of this. The defs attorney must have some reason to go after Trees but I do not see how they should be held liable for something very much out of their control. One could argue that the behavior was foreseeable (and the club should have used precaution to prevent incident) but then the spectator knew what he was getting into as much as the club would have.

Yeah, really...Andy Dick may be a strung-out creep that's one ketamine bender from knocking on death's door, but it doesn't look like he touched that big dude with his dink. This is stupid.

Does it really matter? Are you telling my that if a man (you didn't want to) exposed himself to you and tried to rub up against you, you wouldn't care cause you got away in time? It's disgusting.

they bought the ticket - they knew what they were getting into ... and the white zone is still for unloading passengers only

scottindallas: looks like you picked the wrong week to stop sniffing glue.

Coleman: scott is quoting the late, great Jack Kilpatrick's one line from Airplane!, "Shana, they bought their tickets. They knew what they were getting into. I say, let 'em crash!"

 it's ANDY DICK. he's a scumbag sleezeball, and this dude paid for the experience of Andy Dick..you get what you pay for.  there was no scrote-to-face contact.

Chris Conrod

Yes it matters because the allegation is false.  The video is evidence that his genitals did not make contact with his face.  He is just exaggerating the story in order to milk the celebrity for as much money as he can.  Why didn't he resist and try to back off when Andy first approached him and started touching his head?
