Fred Willard Arrested for Alleged Lewd Conduct in XXX Movie Theater

The Anchorman star was caught with his pants down in an L.A. porn theater Tuesday night

We figured that most celebrities would have learned that this is behavior you need to keep on the down low ever since Paul Reubens -- a.k.a Pee-Wee Herman -- was busted back in 1991, but apparently Fred Willard didn't get the memo. According to TMZ, the Anchorman actor, 72, was arrested Wednesday night for alleged lewd conduct after being found with his pants down in an adult movie house in Los Angeles by police officers. As is to be expected in these situations, Hollywood LAPD arrested him and brought him into the station.

TMZ confirms that the arrest was made at 8 45 p.m. by officers performing a routine sweep of an XXX cinema called the Tiki Theater. Willard was booked but later released after being caught in the act.

So what exactly was Willard watching that got him in so much trouble? TMZ did some quick reporting and discovered that there are three movies on rotation at the theater: Follow Me 2, Step Dad No. 2 and an X-rated parody of The Client List. We don't know if we'll ever know the flick that was Willard's downfall.

Though an incident like this forever changed Reubens' career, we really doubt that this will affect Willard's at all. Willard seems to gravitate towards offbeat, kooky roles so this probably won't alienate his fans. It's not like he was best known for running a children's show, and then got caught with his pants down!
