It’s not very often that people find humor in their own legal problems. Usually when a celebrity is arrested they spend a bunch of time and money trying their best to put out the fire. They go into damage control mode and sometimes even disappear for a while.
This is not the approach that Willard is taking.
He has been in so many TV shows and movies that it’s not even worth trying to name them. At first I thought he was in MASH, but it turns out I was mistaking him for someone else.
Anyway, he was allegedly caught by a police officer with his penis in his hand in an adult theatre. He was arrested on suspicion of committing a lewd act, but now it looks like he might not even spend time in jail.
Here is his latest Tweet about the ordeal:
So he thinks the movie that he was watching in the theater was lousy, but I just don’t understand the racquetball comment. I hope it’s not as gross as it sounds. The LA Times has reported that he might not even go to a trial if he can sign up for a program that costs less than $400. This program would keep him from going to jail and could provide him lessons on how to make good decisions.
Unfortunately for him, PBS dropped him from his job a narrator on Market Street, but he still works for ABC on another project.
We will see what kind of effect this has on his career after everything is worked out in court. I’ve included some Fred Willard photos below, click the thumbnails to enlarge.
