Homeless man with 'golden voice' questioned by police

A homeless former radio announcer who became a YouTube sensation for his "golden voice" has been questioned by police after a disturbance at his Hollywood hotel.

Los Angeles police said two people were taken to the Hollywood station on Monday night to be interviewed following an incident at the Renaissance Hotel.

A police spokesman, Richard French, declined to identify the two people because they were not arrested or charged and would not elaborate on the disturbance.

"Hollywood patrol officers responded to a disturbance at the Renaissance Hotel in Hollywood at about 9 o'clock last night," French said.

"There was an investigation conducted there," he said. "Officers took 2 people back to Hollywood Station for further questioning. Those individuals were later released. There was booking, no arrest, no charges filed."

But local media and celebrity web sites reported that Ted Williams, 53, and his daughter were questioned after getting into an argument at the hotel.

Williams, a former radio announcer who became homeless after battling drugs and alcohol, attracted millions of YouTube hits last week after The Columbus Dispatch newspaper posted a video of him panhandling using radio emcee imitations.

He has since appeared on morning news programs including "The Today Show" to talk about new voice-over job offers with the Cleveland Cavaliers basketball team and foodmaker Kraft and his stunning instant rise from begging on the streets.
