Andy Dick was arrested early Wednesday outside a bar in Murrieta, Calif., on drug and sexual battery charges after he allegedly lifted a 17-year-old girl's top in the parking lot, police said.

The 42-year-old comedian, described by police as "extremely intoxicated at the time of his arrest," was later released on $5,000 bail from the Riverside County jail.

Officers responded at 1:13 a.m. to a call of a man urinating and causing a disturbance outside the Buffalo Wild Wings restaurant and bar in the community 60 miles southeast of Los Angeles.

The officers stopped a truck leaving the parking lot and witnesses identified Dick in a "curbside lineup" as one of the truck passengers who had "battered" a 17-year-old girl, according to the police statement.

"Dick walked up to the 17-year-old female victim, grabbed her tank top and bra and pulled them down and exposed her breasts," the statement said. "Marijuana and Xanax were found in Andy Dick's pants pockets."

He was booked at 4:30 a.m. on felony possession of narcotics, misdemeanor possession of marijuana and misdemeanor sexual battery.

A court date was set for Aug. 12.
