Fred Willard is expected to get off easy in his lewd conduct case. Okay, wrong choice of words.
The veteran actor, who was arrested this week for an incident inside a Hollywood theater that allegedly involved his pants being down, can avoid prosecution if he signs up for a $380 "pre-filing diversion class," The Los Angeles Times reports. This is a program that teaches one about responsibility and decision-making.
Willard has referred to the arrest as a "a big misunderstanding" and he's already been fired from his job at PBS.
But at least it looks like the funny man won't get into any real trouble with the law and at least he has the support of his friends. Tweeted Albert Brooks a couple days ago:
"I love Fred Willard. He's a great guy. For his birthday I'm getting him a den and a computer."
