Fred Willard Arrested for Lewd Conduct
TMZ ^ | JULY 19, 2012 | SATFF

Posted on 07/19/2012 2:49:14 PM PDT by Red Badger

Fred Willard was arrested for lewd conduct last night in Hollywood when police allegedly caught him with his pants down in an adult movie theater ... TMZ has learned.

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 penis exposed and in his hand.

We're told Willard was arrested around 8:45PM and booked for lewd conduct.

It was a quick release -- we're told he was out of police custody a short while later.

As for which movie Fred was watching -- there are 3 flicks in rotation at the theater ... "Follow Me 2," a XXX parody of "The Client List," and "Step Dad No. 2."

Willard is best known for his memorable roles in "Best in Show", "For Your Consideration", "American Wedding" and "Everybody Loves Raymond."

According to IMDB, Fred is "rumored" to be in pre-production for a movie entitled ... "The Yank."

It's a comedy.

UPDATE:

8:47 AM PT -- We're starting to get comments from people who say Fred is 72 and not 78 ... but official records show that he was born on September 18, 1933 ... NOT 1939.

7:06 AM PT -- Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... the LAPD vice officers were not conducting a raid ... but rather a "random walk-through" of the premises.

We're told ... when theaters like this get their license, they have to allow cops in whenever they want ... to inspect.

In fact, the theater has a sign posted in the front which warns customers that the theater is "viewed by LAPD."

The theater also warns, "No Alcohol, No Weapons, No smoking inside" ... and no pets.

The signs do not warn about flogging the dolphin.

That usually doesn't happen when you get older.

Sweet
Little Willy Lyrics

[ from Detroit Rock City Soundtrack ]

North side, east side
Little Willy, Willy wears the crown, he’s the king around town
Dancing, glancing
Willy drives them silly with his star shoe shimmy shuffle down
Way past one, and feeling alright
‘Cause with little Willy round they can last all night
Hey down, stay down, stay down down

‘Cause little Willy, Willy won’t go home
But you can’t push Willy round
Willy won’t go, try tellin’ everybody but, oh no
Little Willy, Willy won’t go home

Up town, down town
Little Willy, Willy drives them wild with his run-around style
Inside, outside
Willy sends them silly with his star-shine shimmy shuffle smile
Mama done chase Willy down through the hall
But laugh, Willy laugh, he don’t care at all
Hey down, stay down, stay down, down

‘Cause little Willy, Willy won’t go home
But you can’t push Willy round
Willy won’t go, try tellin’ everybody but, oh no
Little Willy, Willy won’t go home

Little Willy, Willy won’t
Willy won’t, Willy won’t
Little Willy, Willy won’t
Willy won’t, Willy won’t
Little Willy, Willy won’t
Willy won’t, Willy won’t
Little Willy, Willy won’t
Willy won’t, Willy won’t

Little Willy, Willy won’t go home
But you can’t push Willy round
Willy won’t go, try tellin’ everybody but, oh no
Little Willy, Willy won’t go home

Little Willy, Willy won’t go home
But you can’t push Willy round
Willy won’t go, try tellin’ everybody but, oh no
Little Willy, Willy won’t go home

With porn rampant on the Internet it’s amazing that these theaters still attract patrons. Willard will go the way of Peewee Herman.

IIRC “Pee Wee” was staying at his parents when he got himself into trouble.

Not that such is a good excuse, but it wasn’t a matter of him not having a DVD player (was it VCR back then?), or a computer on hand.

I tend to agree, it’s not like he was exposing himself before the public, everybody there was probably doing the same exact thing.

If they want to close the business down, fine....but come on, what do you expect guys to do in a place like that?

I don’t understand why this is a crime. There are no children in these places and no women (I’m guessing). Why would he be arrested and not just given a warning?
