Troubled comedian Andy Dick was visited by cops in Las Vegas Saturday while staying with a Twitch streamer, who apparently pulled a gun on a third man during a chaotic scene caught on camera – the latest in a long string of bizarre behavior and run-ins with the law in recent years.

The comedian can also be heard pleading ‘don’t shoot the gun’ in the background. 

Video from the live stream shows Dick with a relatively unknown internet personality known online as Wappy Flanker, at whose apartment Dick has apparently been sleeping at recently.

In the shocking video, which was attempting to raise money to help the beleaguered comedian, a third man joins the pair at Flanker’s place – where an argument quickly breaks out. Flanker then pulls out a gun and warns the man to leave.

‘Don’t shoot the gun,’ Dick can be heard saying in the background.

TMZ reported that authorities were alerted to the situation after someone who was watching the live stream called for a welfare check. 

Commenters online began to speculate that Dick is being held hostage at the meager apartment – though the 55-year-old reportedly told police that he wanted to remain at the home.

Dick has previously struggled with substance abuse, and has had multiple brushes with the law in recent years.

In 2019, he was sentenced to 14 days in jail for sexual battery after allegedly squeezing a woman’s butt, but was released after just one night of serving time due to overcrowding. 

In April 2018, he plead not guilty to one count of misdemeanor sexual battery for allegedly groped the crotch of his male Uber driver.

Police spoke to both men, and eventually left without citing or arresting anyone.

Just the day before the cops were called, Flanker can be seen in another video with a gun on his waistband while Dick yells at an unnamed third party offscreen.  

In recent Twitch streams and videos posted online, Dick can be seen walking around an unfurnished apartment, where he appears to be sleeping on a cot in the living room.

Last year, the troubled comedian was also arrested on charges of assault with a deadly weapon after allegedly attacking his lover with a metal chair in Los Angeles.

The troubled star’s friend Elisa Jordana, 33, revealed the arrest on her YouTube show, Kermit and Friends in June 2021, while alleging Dick ‘assaulted his lover Lucas.’

‘He could have killed him,’ she said of the victim, who was taken to Cedars-Sinai hospital to treat his injuries. ‘I saw pictures, I saw video; it’s not good.’

The LAPD later confirmed Dick had been arrested, Page Six reported.

Andy also has an adult son named Lucas but Jordana called the man Andy allegedly hit with the chair was his ‘lover’ – it is unclear who he is, as she did not give a last name.  

Jordana (born Elisa Ann Schwartz), who stated Dick gets ‘very aggressive’ when drunk, said ‘there were signs ‘ that ‘something was going to happen.’
