Fred Willard Fired by PBS, Issues Statement

by at . Comments

In light of his, ahem, embarrassing arrest, Fred Willard finds himself without a steady job.

The 78-year old actor, who was booked last night on charges of lewd conduct when police caught him with his pants down in a movie theater, has been let go as the voice of PBS's Antique Rainbows spinoff, Market Warriors

The veteran actor's attorney, however, has issued a statement proclaiming his client's innocence.

"With all due respect to the individual officer, our belief is that Fred did nothing in any violation of any law," Paul Takakjian tells TMZ. "We will be working vigorously to clear his name in this matter."

In the meantime, can someone please buy this man a big screen TV and a DVD player?
