The owner of the Hollywood porn theater where Fred Willard was arrested for lewd conduct has stepped up and said the actor did nothing wrong.
The 72-year-old star of “Best in Show” and “A Mighty Wind,” among countless other comic roles, was busted Wednesday night at the Tiki Theater when vice cops allegedly saw him with his genitals exposed and in his hand.
But Tiki manager Kazi Jafor told E! News that the undercover officers arrested Willard “suspiciously.”
"I did not see anything," Jafor said, adding that he had never seen Willard at the theater before Wednesday.
He claims that overzealous vice officers patrol his theater as often as four times a day, leading to more than 20 arrests. "Business has gone down," he said. "Customers do not come. They are too nervous to come here."
The arrest led to Willard being fired from his job as narrator of PBS's new show "Market Warriors."
Willard's attorney, Paul Takakjian, told the Los Angeles Times that his client’s name will be cleared.
