According to reports in TMZ, the actor was cycling along Hollywood Boulevard when he approached a man wearing a large chain.

Dick has previously had trouble with the police, as Reuters reports. In 2008 he was arrested in California on suspicion of pulling down a teenage girl's top at a restaurant. Two years later, he was apprehended after reportedly grabbing a man's crotch at a bar in West Virginia. 

Dick has also struggled with substance abuse as he revealed whilst appearing on Sober House, a spin-off of Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew. On the show he revealed the numerous incidents were a direct result of his addictions. 

48-year-old Dick is best known for his comedic roles in such television shows as Less than Perfect and films including Blonde Ambition, Employee of the Month and Funny People
