Bikers sometimes get a bad rap here in L.A.: drivers like to complain that our bikers have no respect for laws and common decency.

Well, biker Andy Dick, who is also a celebrity and sometimes on television, is doing nothing to help the stereotype. TMZ reports that last week Dick allegedly biked up to a man (who recognized him from TV) and asked to check out the man's necklace, then biked away with it.

Police didn't find Dick immediately, but they located him late last night biking near his Hollywood apartment and arrested him. Now he's out of jail on $25,000 bail and facing a grand theft charge, City News Service says.

The victim told police the necklace is worth around $1,000.
