Comedy Actor Fred Willard Arrested for Masturbating in Adult Theater

| by Michael Allen

Sources at the Los Angeles Police Department told TMZ.com that Fred Willard, the comedic star of 'A Mighty Wind,' was arrested by undercover police officers at the Tiki Theater after being caught with his genitals exposed, and in his hand, during a viewing of an adult porn film.

The 72-year-old actor was booked on a charge of lewd conduct at around 8:45 p.m. Wednesday and released.

According to TMZ.com, the LAPD were not conducting a raid, but a “random walk-through” to check for people exposing themselves in the theater.

Ironically, Willard is set to star in an upcoming film titled 'The Yank,' about an Irish-American who travels back to Ireland to find love. However, now the title takes on a brand new meaning.
