Comedian Andy Dick on Friday pleaded not guilty to charges he groped two men, Reuters reported.

Dick is accused of grabbing the crotches of a security guard and another man at a Huntington, West Virginia bar in January of last year. According to several reports, Dick appeared to be very drunk and also attempted to kiss the men.

The NewsRadio co-star pleaded not guilty to two counts of sexual abuse before a Cabell County judge. Each charge carries a maximum penalty of five years in prison. After Dick pleaded not guilty, Judge Paul Ferrell set a trial date of January 17, 2012.

The episode is the latest in a string of legal troubles for the openly bisexual comic.

In 2008, Dick pleaded guilty to marijuana possession and misdemeanor battery charges stemming from an incident in which he allegedly pulled down a 17-year-old girl's tank top and bra in Murrieta, California.

In January, he was thrown out of the annual adult movie awards ceremony for stalking and groping actress Tera Patrick and gay porn director Chi Chi LaRue.
