According to Page Six, a spokesperson for Orange County District Attorney’s Office confirmed that Andy’s bail was “set at $25,000, but said he only had to pay 10 percent of the total.”
A court date for August 10, 2022, has been scheduled.

What happened with Andy and Ivanka Trump on the Jimmy Kimmel show?
A 2007 clip of Andy grabbing at Donald Trump’s daughter, Ivanka, resurfaced online back in 2018.
In the shocking clip from Jimmy Kimmel Live, Andy rubs Ivanka’s legs and arm as she squirms awkwardly in her seat.
Host Jimmy swoops in several times during the madcap encounter, as Andy continues to make excuses to touch her.
Eventually, show security swept in, and Jimmy helped them carry Andy out of the studio as the audience applauded.
According to Kimmel, Andy asked Ivanka for a “big, wet kiss” as soon as he met her.
“It was time for Andy to go, so I escorted him out by his feet,” he later said.
Andy himself even commented on the incident on Instagram, writing:
“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. I was jokingly carried off by security.”
He added: “Is anybody going to carry Trump off? No joke. Confusing times.”
