Fred Willard To Avoid Prosecution Over Lewd Conduct Arrest
The This is Spinal Tap star will avoid being formally charged if he completes a "pre-filing diversion program", according to the Los Angeles City Attorney's Office.
Spokesperson Frank Mateljan tells the Los Angeles Times, "I want to stress this was and is a filable case, and should the defendant choose not to enrol or not complete the program, we have the option of filing criminal charges within a year... Should he complete the course, we will consider the matter closed."
The course will cost Willard $380 (£238), but he has already lost his job as narrator for the Pbs reality TV show Market Warriors.
Willard has maintained his innocence after the arrest for allegedly masturbating during a porn film at Hollywood's Tiki Theater.
