Andy Dick, who plays Matthew Brock on the TV sitcom "NewsRadio," was arrested on drunk driving and drug possession charges Saturday after his car crashed into a utility pole in the ritzy Hancock Park section of Los Angeles, a police spokeswoman said Sunday. Dick, 33, allegedly fled the scene of the accident but was later arrested and booked on charges of driving under the influence and possessing a controlled substance (cocaine and marijuana, a policewoman said). Dick was released after posting $10,000 bail. A court appearance on the charges is set for May 25.

  • Dick hit the utility pole and then fled on foot about 11 a.m., police officer Don Cox said. A witness chased him and detained him until police arrived.
