Media sensation Ted Williams, the velvet voiced radio announcer who was recently rediscovered panhandling for spare change on the streets of Columbus, Ohio, appears to have acquired quite a lengthy rap sheet and a healthy number of mug shots to accompany it.
Williams’ mug shots were recently released by Ohio authorities, and it is a bit of a shock to see how many times the silver tongued spokesman has been photographed by police.
Police released no less than 12 mug shots of the silky throated wonder.
Thesmokinggun.com has also found a simple police complaint from July, 2010, that resulted in a trespassing charge against Williams. Here is the police report of that incident:
It is rather surprising that this is all TheSmokingGun could come up with considering Williams arrest record. A hardened criminal he is not.
In the meantime Dr Phil has convinced Ted to enter a rehab facility for his alcohol and drug addiction. It appears that Ted has not really been clean for two years like he told America in his first viral video interview with the Columbus Dispatch.
“If Ted is ever going to get better, he’s got to be honest with himself and admit he’s addicted to drugs and alcohol,” Dr. Phil said. “I’ve told him it’s not going to be easy and it’s going to take a lot of hard work. It might be a long journey for him, but this is a big step in the right direction.”
Ted appeared several times on Dr. Phil’s TV show this week. Neither Dr. Phil nor a spokesman would tell where Ted will undergo rehab therapy.
The Cleveland Cavaliers NBA basketball team has agreed to stand by Ted, so his job offer with them remains open after Ted has finished Rehab. EOnLine.com reported that Tad Carper, spokesman for the Cavaliers, was quoted, “The Cavaliers, Quicken Loans and our entire family of companies wish Ted Williams and his family the best as they continue their unique journey.”
