Ted Williams…The Homeless Radio Guy…In Trouble Again
Last week, 53-year-old Ted Williams went from homeless to famous, thanks to a video that showed off his slick radio voice. He’s received tons of job offers since then, even though he’s got a pretty extensive rap sheet.
Time to pull out the rap sheet again.
Ted’s in L.A. for media appearances, and on Monday night, someone called the LAPD after he got into a loud argument in a Hollywood hotel with his daughter Janey.
It basically started out as some kind of family gathering, and the bickering developed into a shouting match . . . possibly fueled by alcohol.
Janey says Ted has relapsed into his alcohol-abusing ways, and that he’s been drinking a bottle of vodka a night.
Ted says his daughter hit him and scratched his face, but he was led away in handcuffs, and they were both held at a Hollywood police station for a couple hours.
They were both released, and neither was arrested.
Before he became instantly famous, Ted had problems with drugs and alcohol and has been arrested at least a dozen times. He’s served time for theft, forgery, and drug possession.
