Ted Williams Detained By LAPD

1/11/2011 12:45 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

UPDATE: Law enforcement sources tell TMZ the argument between Ted and his daughter was over money. Williams has gotten several job offers and made numerous tv appearances since last week.

Ted Williams
-- the homeless man with the golden voice -- was detained by LAPD last night after getting into a shouting match with one of his daughters.

Ted Williams Arrested

It went down at the Renaissance Hotel in Hollywood -- where Ted and his daughter got into it so loudly ... a hotel employee called the cops.

Ted and his daughter were both taken to the Hollywood station, but neither Ted nor his daughter wanted to press charges so both were released.

UPDATE: Ted Williams enters rehab.

Where are the producers of Bum Fights when you need them! I'd love to watch Ted pull his teeth out with pliers! It would be the perfect ending to the story!

If the promoters like the voice than use it and move on! Whomever picked this poor man up, off the streets, knew exactly what they were getting! Drugs, alcohol or any other concern did not condemn him then when they picked him up -- so why now? Most people hanging out on a corner asking for money are in need of help -- all kinds of help, it can be a family or a single today -- people need help! Let this man be or help him! Make up your mind! Embarrassing him is not the ticket and it is sooooooooo mean to exploit him on TV like this! Give the homeless a break and either place this golden voice back out or take him in -- make up your mind! Cures do not happen over night! Some CEO is either fired for this or hating himself or herself for the involvement! The thought was sweet but there are tons of deserving people who need help out there! Help as many as you can -- not just a man with a good voice to make voice overs -- my goodness are you telling me there is no one in radio--in school- or old and out of work with this knowledge and talent??? A person who has less to loose and you have more to gain?? I have no idea why I answer these things -- it is so frustrating!! I wish him luck and hopefully Mr. Golden voice has not been walked back to the street where he came and will get some help and work out of this! His childcare adults -- let the man make some money and live decent a while before they want the child support of mega $$ from years back! My God! What are they thinking???? Certainly not a loving thought! I think they are enjoying the ridicule he is now getting.
