Fred Willard Arrested: Actor Caught With Pants Down In Adult Movie Theater

Posted: Updated:

Fred Willard was caught with his pants down in a movie theater Wednesday evening and arrested for "lewd conduct," according to TMZ.

The "This Is Spinal Tap" actor visited the Tiki Theater, an adult movie theater in Hollywood, where he was spotted by authorities with his "penis exposed and in his hand." The 72-year-old "Anchorman" actor was arrested at 8:45 p.m. and released from police custody not long after.

But Willard isn't the first -- and certainly won't be the last -- celebrity to be caught in this kind of sticky situation.

In 1995, Hugh Grant was arrested for "lewd conduct" after picking up a prostitute on Hollywood's Sunset Blvd. and driving a short distance before authorities caught them in "the act."

Three years later, George Michael was arrested in a Beverly Hills public bathroom after an officer "observed Mr. Michael engaged in a lewd act."

Perhaps not so ironically, Willard's next project is said to be the forthcoming flick "The Yank."

UPDATE: Willard's lawyer tells TMZ that the actor did not violate any laws inside of the theater and that he "will be working vigorously to clear his name in this matter."
