Ted Williams, the Cleveland Cavaliers' formerly homeless golden voice radio announcer made famous recently, is reportedly entering rehab after beingted-williams detained by the Los Angeles Police Department earlier this week. Posted by Ben Golliver. 

On Tuesday, we noted that Ted Williams, the formerly homeless man with a great radio voice who was given a job and a house by the Cleveland Cavaliers, was detained by the Los Angeles Police Department following an argument with his daughter. 

Multiple media outlets are reporting on Wednesday that Williams, who has a lengthy criminal record and has admitted to battling drug and alcohol problems in the past, will be checking into rehab, just one week after becoming an internet sensation.

USAToday.com reports the details.
Ted Williams, the homeless man with the golden voice whose viral YouTube video turned him in an overnight sensation, is entering rehab for drug and alcohol addiction, according to the Dr Phil Show.
Williams agreed to enter the private facility following a one-on-one interview with the show's star that will air tomorrow on the syndicated show.
TMZ.com reports the same.
Williams made the decision during a taping for the "Dr. Phil Show" today -- two days after the LAPD detained him over a verbal altercation with his daughter at a Hollywood hotel.
According to a press release for the show, Ted "has been drinking daily, despite his adamant claims of sobriety."
While in Los Angeles this weekend, Williams attended the Los Angeles Lakers' shootaround and was even filmed meeting Lakers star Kobe Bryant

No word yet on whether the Cavaliers will continue their relationship with Williams. 

The Cavaliers lost to the Lakers in historic fashion on Tuesday night, 112-57.

You prove that point.  See, you a total waste of space.  Have been all your pathetic life and you prove it your comments.  So you are an addictive waste of space.  Might want to seek help for that.  Maybe check into a clinic for waste of space addiction.

You can take the drunk off the street, but it's hard to take the drink out of the drunk.

Most of the posts on the first article about this guy said this was going to happen. Addicts don't change. Hence the word "Addict". Stay tuned...

No surprise.  Sad, but predictable.  People with addiction problems rarely- if ever- change.

I find it funny, that you state the daugther was not there for him, whne he's the father?!?!?  Shouldn't it be the other way around, he was not there for his children, why would they be there for him, if they even had any type of relationship, which I doubt they did, which would be his fault.  I will not shed one tear when he falls back on his face.

Ted needs to realize this is his one and only chance to recover and salvage his life.  He lied to potential employers, employers, and everyone following his story by saying he was clean.  It's understandable that he would no tell the truth about drinking and nobody should hold that against him, but now that it's out in the open employers should and probably will give him ONE last chance.  In the corporate world, there are too many talented people to replace those with these types of issues and Ted is easily replaced.  Now if he were playing for the Cavaliers, then drink  away Ted, you'd be employed as long as you are scoring points.
