Comic Actor Fred Willard Arrested in Adult Movie Theater

Comic actor Fred Willard was arrested Wednesday night in a Hollywood adult movie theater, according to a report by TMZ.com.

“According to law enforcement sources, LAPD undercover vice officers went into the Tiki Theater in Hollywood and found the 78-year-old ‘Anchorman’ star watching last night’s feature" with his genitals allegedly exposed, the story reports.

Willard was reportedly booked on suspicion of lewd conduct, and was quickly released from police custody.

Officials told the website the vice officers were doing a “random walk-through” at the theater.

“We’re told … when theaters like this get their license, they have to allow cops in whenever they want … to inspect,” the report notes. “In fact, the theater has a sign posted in the front which warns customers that the theater is ‘viewed by LAPD.’"

Willard is known for his roles in a series of mockumentaries, including “Best in Show,” “Waiting for Guffman” and “For Your Consideration.” He also has a long list of TV credits, including “Modern Family” and “Everybody Loves Raymond.”

  1. I always thought he looked like a little perv now we all know for sure. Maybe he was there with pee wee Herman lol

  2. He’s always known how to handle himself in public.

  3. Unthinking louts like you, disguised by anonymity, can say stupid things as you did without retribution. You’re a sleaze.

  4. Wow, adult theaters still exist?
    Someone give Willard a VCR or DVD player or teach him how to use the Internet. 🙂

  5. You have an interesting definition of “sleaze.” I hope you enjoy the movie as much as Fred apparently did.

  6. Doesn’t the pathetic LAPD have some real criminals to catch. While arresting Fred a hand full of rapists and armed robbers got away. What a bunch of losers.
