(Newser) – This is probably not how you want to picture Fred Willard, but: He's gone and pulled a Pee-Wee (pun intended) and gotten himself arrested for allegedly masturbating in an adult movie theater. Undercover LAPD officers entered Hollywood's Tiki Theater last night and found Willard, who was watching one of the following three movies currently showing there: Follow Me 2, Step Dad No. 2, or a dirty parody of The Client List. He was charged with lewd conduct.

Hilariously, Willard—who frequently appears in Christopher Guest mockumentaries and has also been seen in Anchorman and Everybody Loves Raymond, among other roles—has a new movie in the works called The Yank, TMZ notes. Click for a picture of the theater's sign, which specifically warns of the LAPD.
