Golden-Voiced Ted Williams Going to Rehab

The formerly homeless man admits in an episode of "Dr. Phil" to air Thursday that he has started drinking again.

Homeless man-turned MSNBC announcer Ted Williams is checking himself into rehab, a Dr. Phil show rep confirms.

Williams, who became a viral internet sensation for his golden voice, admits in an episode of the Dr. Phil show to air Thursday that he has started drinking again. He had been sober for two years.

Williams was briefly detained by police Monday night in Hollywood after getting into an altercation with his daughter, Janey, who accused him of drinking, which he denied at first.

Dr. Phil convinced Williams to enter rehab off-camera, GossipCop.com reports.

Williams' spots for MSNBC’s "Lean Forward" campaign begin airing late last week.
