Fred Willard, an actor mainly known for his role in Best in Show and as the religious father of Robert’s girlfriend on Everybody Loves Raymond, was arrested Wednesday night for lewd conduct, reports TMZ.
Willard, 72, was arrested around 8:45 P.M at the “Tiki,” an adult movie theater. The vetern actor was arrested for suspicion of committing a lewd act.
LAPD representatives told TMZ that he was held in custody and released shortly afterwards.
PBS told The New York Times on Thursday that due to the incident, Willard will no longer be the narrator of “Market Warriors,” a new show that is a spinoff of “Antiques Roadshow.”
Police were doing a random walk-through and saw Willard sitting his with pants down and his ***** exposed in hand.
When adult theaters open, it is a common practice for police to do inspections.
Williard has made no comments.
Willard’s next project is said to be the forthcoming flick “The Yank.” (no really)
