Willard Arrest

Porn Theater Mgr:

Fred Denied Doing "Wrong"

7/20/2012 8:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0720_willard_manager_videoFrom the moment Fred Willard was arrested for lewd conduct inside an adult movie theater, he proclaimed his innocence to cops ... this according to the manager of the theater. 

As TMZ first reported, Willard's attorney has said he does not believe Fred did anything "in violation of any law."

The manager of the Tiki Theater in Hollywood says he didn't know who Fred was when he came in to the theater, but as soon as cops busted him, the manager says Fred told police "I did not do anything wrong."

The manager said he had never seen Willard before that day and noticed that Willard paid special attention to the rules of the theater posted on the wall before he entered.

He should have just bought some XXX videos and watched them at home. He would have saved himself alot of humiliation.

It's an XXX theater, you should be able to jerk whatever you want in there.

Like the manager said, if you pay attention to the rules, your not a pervert or sexual deviant.

So this is just a case of mistaken identity of a penis?
Cops should have brought coach Beulah Balbricker with 'em

Oh please, hes a 70+ year old man, not sure what he was thinking going into that place, but why destroy the rest of his career with this nonsense, aren't there enough rapist, murderers and psychos out there more deserving of police attention.

How could Fred focus on pleasure in a place that smells like hot Curry and feet? Fred is being set up by Indians.

if a guy goes to a strip club and gets a hard on is he going to be arrested? the police department ought to be called up on why they spent the tax payers money on something so trivial.

I wouldn't expect him to say he did something wrong. People 78 don't just suddenly start this type of behavior--there are probably other stories out there.

I don't understand why anyone would want to watch porn in a theatre full of random people. That's weird. Why not just watch them at home where you can jack if freely? lol oh my. Weird indeed.
