Fred Willard is adamant ... he did NOTHING wrong while inside an adult movie theater in L.A. this morning ... and believes he will clear his name.

Willard's lawyer, Paul Takakjian, just released a statement to TMZ ... telling us, "With all due respect to the individual officer, our belief is that Fred did nothing in any violation of any law."

He adds, "We will be working vigorously to clear his name in this matter."

TMZ broke the story ... 78-year-old Willard was arrested for lewd conduct last night in Hollywood when police allegedly caught him with his pants down in an adult movie theater.

78 ? He's getting into the " Viagra won't even help ya years ". I bet the cops grabbed everyone in there and charged them with the same offense, whether it was true or not. Typical LAPD rights violating round-up.

Sorry Fred but the fact you were even in the theatre doesn't speak well for your character. Likely whacking off is the least of your faults. Where there's smoke there's fire and there's a lot of smoke in this case. Wouldn't be surprised at all if some of his skeletons start coming out of his closet.

Didn't working vigorously put him in this situation in the first place?

He graduated from Virginia Military Institute in 1955. If that is true, then he would be 78.

"Caught him with his pants down"? I'd say, in a porn theater, that's called profiling! What did they expect him to be doing...writing a review?!

Thank God the alleged charge is only masturbation. The first report I saw said he killed some Sea man in a theater.
