Video shows Andy Dick getting punched outside French Quarter club

Video shows what New Orleans police described as a “possible assault” of comedian Andy Dick that occurred early Saturday outside a French Quarter music club.

Surveillance video obtained by WDSU News and captured in the 600 block of Toulouse Street appears to show the comedian being punched from the side or from behind by a man in dark-colored clothing. Dick appears to immediately fall to the ground outside One Eyed Jacks, and a small crowd of people around him crouch down to check on him.

The New Orleans Police Department said Louisiana State Police troopers responded to the scene about 2:20 a.m., and a complaint was filed with the Police Department on Monday afternoon.

The person in dark-colored clothing can be seen walking briskly down Toulouse Street, and then turning the corner.

Dick performed at One Eyed Jacks on Friday night before the incident occurred, the club’s calendar shows.

Emergency medical services received a call around 2:20 a.m. about an unconscious man at 615 Toulouse Street, the address of the club, said EMS spokesman Lt. Jonathan Fourcade. An ambulance took a 53-year-old man to a hospital, he said.

Police Department spokesman Gary Scheets said Tuesday that detectives have tried to meet with the victim, but have not yet been able to speak with him.
