Fred Willard reportedly engaged in a “lewd act” on Wednesday evening drawing cops’ attention. According to Us Weekly, the comedian was arrested at an adult theater in Hollywood because his behavior seemed suspicious.
Fred Willard has made a career in Hollywood thanks to his roles in “Anchorman”, “Wall-E” and “Best in Show”. His reputation was, unfortunately, seriously damaged after the 72-year-old actor was arrested on Wednesday evening at the Tiki Theater in Hollywood. Police officers did not release too many details in relation to the event, except for describing Willard’s behavior as a case of “lewd act”.
The actor did not spend too much time in the jail as he was immediately booked and released. The press insisted on obtaining a declaration from Willard or from his reps, but they all kept mum. Reporters have managed to find out that the theater was showing three movies at the time when Fred was arrested, that is, “Follow Me 2”, and XXX parody of “The Client List” and “Step Dad Nr. 2”.
Fred Willard has had several career achievements, as well. He received two Emmy nominations for his performances in “Everybody Loves Raymond” and in “Modern Family”. At present, he hosts the comedy improv and talk show named “Trust Us With Your Life”. The program is broadcast on ABC.
Now that he was arrested, Willard has become the talk of the Internet. Bloggers and comedians have all mocked the actor saying that he is set to feature in a romantic comedy named “The Yank”. It’s up to the 72-year-old comedian to decide whether he will respond to all these jokes or ignore them. Paul Rubens, the creator of Pee-wee Herman, was also arrested in 1991 for “lewd act” in an adult theater. His CBS show was cancelled, but Rubens got the public’s sympathy when he poked fun at the arrest during the MTV Video Music Awards.
