Fred Willard once again insisted that the story about his recent lewd conduct arrest in an adult theater was exaggerated. While responding to the allegation, the actor/comedian offered a review on the movie he watched before he was taken into custody.
"Wait til u hear my version; much more PG," Fred promised to tell his side of story soon. Without mentioning the title of the movie, he added in the same tweet, "& my review, lousy film, but theater would make a terrific racquetball court. Full story 2 follow."
A manager of the theater, Kazi Jafor, also came to Fred's defense. Claiming it was "the first time I've ever seen him before," Kazi said to E! News of the actor's arrest, "Police officers arrested him suspiciously. I did not see anything."
Fred was arrested at the Tiki Theater in Los Angeles during a routine inspection. Around 23 or 24 people were usually booked during the inspection that the police did from three to four times per day to once a week. "Business has gone down," Kazi said. "Customers do not come. They are too nervous to come here."
The arrest that happened on Wednesday, July 18 evening cost Fred his job as a narrator of PBS' "Market Warriors". Fans needed no worry though because "I was not fired from TUWYL so B sure 2 watch Trust Us Wtih your life Tues, ABC 9," he wrote on Twitter.
Fred reportedly is offered an Alternative Prosecution Program to avoid charges. In the diversion course, he is required to obey the laws relating to his alleged offense. He won't be prosecuted if he can complete it for a certain period of time.
