Actor Fred Willard arrested for alleged lewd act in adult theater
The 72-year-old actor was arrested about 8:30 p.m. Wednesday by uniformed vice officers doing a routine inspection at the Tiki Theater in the 5400 block of Santa Monica Boulevard, said Los Angeles police Sgt. Chuck Slater.
Slater said officers observed Willard "engaged in a lewd act" but did not elaborate.
Willard was booked and released on his own recognizance, Slater said.
Willard's publicist said he had no comment.
Willard's credits include "Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy," "This is Spinal Tap" and "Wall-E."
