Williams, the man with the “golden voice” who became an instant Internet sensation, told The Insider that his daughter, Jemay Williams, hit him with an ice bucket inside a room at the Renaissance hotel.

LAPD Spokesman Richard French said the investigation in ongoing and did not say that Williams had actually been arrested.

Williams, who was homeless before YouTube viewers caught on to his amazing voice, had previously battled drug and alcohol problems.

'Golden Pipes' Reunion With Mom 'A Dream Come True'

Photo Courtesy - ABC News(NEW YORK) -- Just a few days ago, Ted Williams was a homeless man living on the streets of Columbus, Ohio. But thanks to his "golden pipes" -- his incredible radio voice -- he is getting a second chance at life. Now he has even had the chance to reunite with his mother, whom he had not seen in 10 years.

"It was just a dream come true because, like I said, if anything transpired out of this whole madness that I am going through I did want this to happen, to be here, to be with her," Williams told ABC’s Good Morning America on Friday. "I am still lost for words sometimes."

Since the video of Williams went viral online, offers from tons of organizations -- from Kraft Foods to MTV -- have started pouring in.

His "golden pipes" video got 13 million views in less than 48 hours, but was later removed from YouTube because the Columbus Dispatch, the newspaper that originally broke the story, owned the copyright to it.

Williams has decided to accept the offers of two companies -- Kraft Foods and The Cleveland Cavaliers. He has already recorded a commercial to air this weekend for the popular macaroni and cheese company and is looking forward to the house the Cavs offered him.
