Dick Denied Entry Into Canada
Troubled comedian ANDY DICK missed a performance in Canada on Wednesday (23Sep09) after he was denied entry at the border under the terms of his probation.
The Road Trip star was due to perform at the Vancouver Comedy Festival but Canadian authorities refused to allow him into the country because of the ankle bracelet he wears as part of his punishment for pleading guilty to drug possession and battery in October (08).
According to gossip blogger Perez Hilton, DICk, who is currently on three years' probation for the offences, was shocked after finding out the device tracks his location and prohibits him from leaving the country.
DICk will remain under "house arrest", confining him to the U.S., until next month (Oct09) when the accessory is set to be removed.
As a result, the 43 year old has had to pull out of another comedy slot at the festival this week (25Sep09).
