LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Ted Williams, the golden-voiced homeless man who shot to fame last week after a video showcasing his announcer talents went viral, was detained by police in Hollywood on Monday night, Access Hollywood has learned.
On Tuesday, LAPD confirmed to Access that officers responded to a disturbance call at the Renaissance Hotel at 9 PM, where Williams was allegedly involved in a verbal altercation with his daughter.
Both Williams and his daughter were transported to the Hollywood station, where they were released without booking.
Neither party wanted to press charges and the investigation is ongoing, police added.
Williams and his daughter were at the Renaissance Hollywood Hotel in Los Angeles where they were staying prior to an appearance on the “Dr. Phil” show, Access has learned.
Williams reunited with his ex-wife Patricia and five of his nine children on an episode of “Dr. Phil” in a two-part episode that will air Tuesday and Wednesday.
As previously reported on AccessHollywood.com, this is not the first brush with the law for Williams, an admitted former alcoholic and drug addict.
According to The Smoking Gun, the 53-year-old overnight sensation has a lengthy rap sheet that spans more than 20 years, with charges including theft, robbery, escape, forgery, and drug possession.
