Fred Willard Arrested for Public Masturbation

by at . Comments

Fred Willard has been arrested for allegedly pulling a Pee-Wee Herman.

According to TMZ sources, the 78-year old comedian (Modern Family, For Your Consideration, American Wedding) was booked last night after undercover LAPD officers entered the Tiki Theater in Hollywood - and discovered Willard with his pants down and his hand around his penis.

Talk about giving a whole new meaning to Best in Show!

Willard was cited for lewd conduct and released from custody not long after he was taken in around 8:45 p.m. local time.

As for what films may have led to such a mess? The three in the theater's rotation at the moment are: Follow Me 2, Step Dad No. 2 and a parody of The Client List.

Really an amateur move here on Willard's part. He could have stayed at home and legally enjoyed the actual Client List. He has seen those Jennifer Love Hewitt ads for it, right?

UPDATE: Willard has been fired by PBS.
