Ted Williams, the homeless man with a golden voice, who has become an overnight sensation across the country, was detained by Los Angeles police officers Monday night following an argument with his daughter. The dispute, which reportedly took place over money, went down at the Renaissance Hotel in Hollywood. A hotel employee called authorities due to excessivly loud shouting between Williams and his daughter. It may have started with this exchange on the Dr. Phil Show seen above. Both were taken to the police station, released without booking, and no charges were pressed.
Williams has received numerous job offers since he was discovered on the streets of Ohio from a YouTube posting this month. He has a long arrest record, but Americans have been transfixed by a man who says God has given him a second chance.
Williams and his daughter were at the Renaissance Hollywood Hotel in Los Angeles where they were staying for their appearance on the “Dr. Phil” show, previewed above. Williams reunited with his ex-wife Patricia and five of his nine children on “Dr. Phil” in a two-part episode that airs Tuesday and Wednesday.
According to The Smoking Gun, the 53-year-old overnight sensation has a rap sheet that spans more than 20 years, with charges including theft, robbery, escape, forgery, and drug possession.
