Ted Williams, the Ohio homeless man whose golden voice captured the attention of millions, was reportedly detained Monday night at a Hollywood hotel after Los Angeles police officers responded to a disturbance call.
According to the LA Times, Williams and his daughter got into a heated altercation, though the source of contention is not known at this point. The pair were taken to a local police station but were eventually released from police custody without charges.
Williams spoke of his family and their strained relationship with Dr. Phil this week:
Williams was in southern California for some television appearances, including "Entertainment Tonight." The show's voice-over actor, Randy Thomas, joined with other Hollywood voice-over talents to pay initiation fees for a Screen Actors Guild (SAG) and American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (AFTRA) membership for Williams on Monday. With his new memberships, he will be able to work in high-profile jobs, be eligible for health benefits and have access to expert voice-over training.
