A man has been arrested in connection to the assault of comedian Andy Dick that was caught on video in New Orleans’ French Quarter.

Comedian Andy Dick can be seen on surveillance footage getting knocked out cold after a sucker-punch outside of One-Eyed Jacks in New Orleans.  Dick had finished his comedy show and was hanging around the club in the early morning hours.  According to the comedian, the assault was random and unprovoked.  A group of people chased after the alleged assailant and police say one other person was struck in the chase.
