Ted Williams, the “homeless man with the Golden voice,” was held by LA police for an hour yesterday.

According to the Atlanta Journal, officers responded to a report of a disturbance at the luxury Renaissance Hollywood Hotel & Spa last night.

It seems that Williams, 53, and his unidentified “daughter” had gotten into a loud verbal altercation in his room, which was probably paid for by a media outlet. Other media outlets are suggesting that his “daughter” was an intimate services provider from the boulevard that he brought up to his room.

“I don’t know how loud they were” but the argument at about 9 p.m. led to a disturbance report, said Officer Catherine Massey on Tuesday.

“It was minor. Both parties were angry but there were no signs of visible abuse,” Massey said. “They were brought in, calmed down, talked to and released.”

Williams, who has a long criminal rap sheet, has been arrested multiple times in the past for theft and drug-related charges.

He was plucked from obscurity as he stood by the side of a highway in Columbus, Ohio, holding a sign that said he was a former radio announcer down on his luck.

Since then, Williams has been courted by national TV and radio outlets, approached to do voiceovers by numerous corporations such as Kraft Foods, and offered a job and a home by the Cleveland Cavaliers.
