Golden-voiced homeless man headed to rehab
LOS ANGELES (AP) - An Ohio homeless man whose silky voice made him a web phenomenon is headed to rehab for alcohol and drug dependency after an appearance on “Dr. Phil.” Show representatives said in a statement Wednesday that Ted Williams agreed to enter a private facility after an interview with Dr. Phil McGraw on a show that will air Thursday.
Williams‘ family also appears to discuss what they call his persistent drinking and a Monday disturbance at a Los Angeles hotel where police briefly detained Williams and his daughter after a heated argument.
The 53-year-old Williams trained to be a radio announcer but found his life derailed by substance abuse and prison time in the 1990s.
Last week he found instant fame after The Columbus Dispatch newspaper posted a Web video of him.
