Fred Willard was arrested for lewd conduct last night in Hollywood when police 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 — aka, pulling a Pee-Wee Herman.
TMZ also reports that Willard is in pre-production for a movie called “The Yank.” Hey, he was just researching. Method acting, people! Yeah, that’s the ticket!
Twitter users are highly amused.
Fred Willard arrested for spanking it in a movie theatre. Wow, that new Batman movie must really be good.

Upon further review, maybe this is guerilla marketing gone wrong. Notice the name of his latest movie. http://t.co/zDEjutFL

@Fred_Willard Don't worry. You'll pull your way out of this. Jokes aside, it is a BS charge. It's like busting someone drinking in a bar.

It certainly gives new meaning to one of his other movies: “Best in Show.”
A few have some advice for the lewd actor for the next time he wants to take matters into his own hands.

I love Fred Willard. He's a great guy. For his birthday I'm getting him a den and a computer.
