A West Virginia judge has ordered Andy Dick to stand trial on felony sexual abuse charges stemming from a nightclub incident last year. Judge Paul Farrell set trial for Jan. 17 and ordered Dick to submit to a urine test. Farrell told him if he returns to court under the influence of drugs he will be jailed.

Dick told the judge he's sober.

The entertainer is accused of grabbing a bouncer's crotch and groping and kissing a male patron at a Huntington bar. He was in town for a performance.

Dick, who remains free on bail, has previously been arrested in California on drug and battery charges. A Texas man is suing him, claiming the performer exposed his genitals at a Dallas performance.
