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.

Ah, the real Ted Williams has relapse again... looks like he's back panhandling in Columbus, Ohio again! So much for the publicity and giving him a second chance! =P

His kids need to take their hands out of his pockets and go home to their own kids and lives. The 2 with him looked to me like they were in competition to see who gets their hands on his money first.

Ted Williams & his family are going through a readjustment period. There are a ton of old wounds to scab over. To fall back into fluid society, now that he is earning a decent paycheck - had its acclamation period. My fear is, that Ted Williams will fight all the demons that caused his initial homelessness, again (drinking, drugging, woman, etc). I wish you luck, Ted. Take it very slow.

A worthless POS for a dad and people want to fault the kids. Hmmm...

I was worried about him from the start. I don't think the guy has the tools to deal with life or addiction responsibly. He seems so child like in how he views the world. Hopefully my worries will prove to be for naught. Still rooting for him!

It was too early for them to try to reconcile. I hope in due time they will have peace together with not just her but all of his kids...

he needs to have his wages garnished to pay all the child support he couldn't seem to give to his children but he could drink and drug away.

Family is ALWAYS first in line to destroy a person. This man is just trying to get his life back together and his family is swooping in for a handout or trying to get control of his money. I see a relapse into drugs an alcohol and his family will be to blame.

Seems a bit over the top to be arrested for having an argument with one of your kids...didn't say anything about them breaking up furniture and s/h/i/t...but they are BLACK...and we know how goes. Cuffs first...questions later. And since so many of you are talking about 15 minutes...all I want to know is when is Charlie Sheens 15 minutes up? This guys has been through so many drug & alchohol incidents, prostitutes, porn stars, beat up every wife and girlfriend he ever had, and STILL signed a new contract to be the highest paid guy on TV. How many chances does he get. And you're riding this guy when he's trying to get his life back together. Give him a chance people!!!

Seen It Before    

After having lived with a drug addict (crack) and alcoholic, Ted has a long row to hoe, and I (for one) do not believe his "I have been clean for 2 years" for a second. He has been living on the street and now is handed a sh*t load of $. I know what "my" crack addict did with her 80K inheritance. She SMOKED it, ALL of it, within a year. Oh, she had been "clean" for 2 years too. Kraft and the rest of America are going to lose on this bet.

Truth    

YEA, YOU KNEW THIS SHIET WAS GONNA HAPPEN. DUDE ADMITTED ON TV HE SCROUNGED OFF HIS OLDEST KIDS AND LIVED OFF THEM WHEN HE FIRST WENT HOMELESS. EVEN ADMITTED TO EATING UP ALL THE FOOD FOR THE KIDS AND BABIES. THEN WAS KICKED OUT WITH HIS DRUG HABITS AND ALL. NOW HE GETS INTO A BIT OF MONEY OF COURSE THE KIDS WANT HIM TO PAY UP. WHAT A DOUCHE BAG. I KNEW THIS STORY WAS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE... SMFH. IT'S FUNNY HOW NO ONE FROM HIS PAST KNOWS OR ADMITS TO KNOWING HIM SUCH AS FORMER CO-WORKERS, FRIENDS, STATION MGRS, DJ'S, ETC. HE WAS DEF. A PATHETIC DUDE. JUST CUZ THE IDIOT HAS A RADIO VOICE DOESNT MEAN HE'S A GOOD PERSON. LOVE TO HEAR WHAT THE PEEPS IN HIS PAST HAS TO SAY. PR STUNT!!
