Comedian Andy Dick has insisted he was acting in self-defense when he allegedly attacked a former lover with a metal chair. It is reported that Andy’s leg was broken in the brawl. He was released from jail on $50,000 bail.
Dick was arrested Saturday after reportedly attacking another man with a chair. Fiancee Elisa Jordana said on her YouTube Show, Kermit and Friends, “He could have killed him, I saw pictures, I saw video; it’s not good.”
A spokesperson told PageSix, “Lucas came to Andy’s apartment that day already in a bad mood. They were play fighting and razzing each other and Andy says next thing he knew, things turned serious for Lucas.”
Dick also said that he was upset that his fiancée Elisa Jordana would leak news about the attack. She also described Dick — who has had numerous run-ins with the law — as being prone to spinning out of control and getting “very aggressive” when drunk.
