Infamous comedian Andy Dick has a long rap sheet when it comes to his history of sexual assault.

Earlier this week it was announced he would be charged with two counts of battery for groping a woman in April. Back in 2008, he was arrested after he pulled down a teen girl's bra, exposing her breasts. 

In 2003, the Daily Mail obtained photos of the actor reaching under a woman's skirt at an event, and in 2007, he repeatedly groped Ivanka Trump - on live TV.

Following Dick's recent assault charges, footage of his appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live has resurfaced.

The clip shows the comedian persistently stroking Trump's legs, grabbing her arm, and touching her hair.

Kimmel attempted to control his guest several times. "Andy, don't touch Ivanka," he says, before getting up and physically restraining Dick, adding, "Donald Trump will kill both of us."

The comic refuses to heed Kimmel's warnings, however, and continues to touch Trump, who bats away his hand and says she has a boyfriend.

Eventually, Kimmel decides enough is enough, and signals security to escort Dick off stage. When he refuses to go quietly, Kimmel intervenes, grabbing Dick by the legs and dragging him off the set.

More than 10 years on, Dick doesn't appear to show any remorse for his actions on the show. Last year, he took to Instagram to reminisce about the incident.

Alongside a shot of the offending moment, he wrote: "The time I "groped" Trump's daughter, Ivanka, on Jimmy Kimmel Live.

"Her legs were sparkling, and I was trying to see if the glitter would wipe off. I also mistakenly thought she would date me. "

He went on to claim that his dramatic exit had all been part of an elaborate gag, before redirecting the rant to Ivanka's father, US President Donald Trump. 

"I was jokingly carried off by security. Is anybody going to carry Trump off? No joke. Confusing times."

Dick has not commented on the recent reappearance of the footage, or his latest criminal charges.
