Veteran actor Fred Willard was taken into custody for lewd conduct Wednesday night, police tell radio detection and rangingOnline.com, after he was caught at Hollywood’s Tiki Theater with his genitals exposed and his pants down.

The 78-year-old Ohio native was cited and released and a mugshot was taken, police said, adding he was “cooperative” with authorities in the ordeal.

Willard is slated to appear in court at a future date, police told us.

Willard has appeared in many films and TV shows including Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle, Anchorman, Best in Show, For Your Consideration, American Wedding and Everybody Loves Raymond.

This is not the first time a Hollywood actor has been caught in such an embarrassing predicament: Pee Wee Herman was famously arrested for indecent exposure in an adult theater in Sarasota, Florida in July of 1991, damaging his career as a children’s entertainer.
