Ted Williams, the Cleveland Cavaliers' formerly homeless golden voice radio announcer made famous recently, was reportedly detained by the Los Angeles Police Departmentted-williams on Monday night. Posted by Ben Golliver.

Less than one week ago, we noted a truly heartwarming tale: the Cleveland Cavaliers offered Ted Williams, a homeless man with a great radio voice found panhandling on the side of the road, a supplementary public address job and a house. 

The good vibes lasted for about six days, as multiple outlets are reporting that Williams was detained by the Los Angeles Police Department on Monday night. TMZ has the details.  
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.
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.
KTLA.com also has the news.

The Cavaliers are in Los Angeles to play the Lakers on Tuesday night. According to the LA Times, Williams attended Lakers practice on Monday. Here's video of Williams meeting Lakers star Kobe Bryant



The paper also noted that Williams was scheduled to be featured on Entertainment Tonight on Tuesday.  Talk about a busy 24 hours.

Earlier this week, TheSmokingGun.com uncovered Williams' lengthy criminal record and CBSSports.com's NFL Facts and Rumors team posted many of his mugshots.

The hotel employee wanted to shake him down for a few G's, but was rebuffed so he did the next best thing...call the cops and offer to sell his story to TMZ. Priceless!

Of course he had some problems, hence the homeless situation. The media, as usual more of a DIRT-DEVIL than producing real news. Real news is like INDICTING, CONVICTING and EXECUTING dumbya and dick for WAR CRIMES, TREASON, TORTURE and ELECTION FRAUD. NOW THAT'S NEWS !

You would think that the slimy American Media would maybe turn the other cheek and leave this poor guy alone, but then again that would be wishful thinking on anyone's part. They build this guy up to create a "feel good American story", then tear him down just as quickly. I did predict this last week and all my friends told me I was being too negative and cynical so I thank you idiots for being so predictable and transparent.

Not even newsworthy.  Good luck to Ted Williams as he gets his life back together and reaquaints himself with his family.  I am sure Ted is no angel but at least he seems fortunate enough to be taking advantage of the opportunities in front of him.  As for being detained it happens and life goes on.  Rather pathetic that the media has to make this into a story cut the guy some slack he's been homeless and now is in the process of putting his life back together.
