Ted Williams, the Ohio homeless man whose golden voice made him a YouTube sensation and brought him offers of work, was detained by the Los Angeles Police Department Monday night at a Hollywood hotel.That career trajectory is suddenly pointed downward again. Imagine my surprise. This obviously is the fault of Sarah Palin for usurping his 15 minutes of fame by triggering the Arizona shootings. Oh, and Rush Limbaugh, who's radio fame reminds Williams what a waste his life has been.
According to law enforcement sources, Williams and a unidentified family member were detained after police were called to the Renaissance Hotel on a disturbance call.
[Updated at 8:32 a.m.: The sources described the incident as an altercation with his daughter, but declined to provide further details.]
Williams was eventually released, and the sources said the investigation was continuing. The sources stressed it's unclear if any arrests would result from the probe. Sources spoke on the condition of anonymity because the case was ongoing.
