Update: Ted Williams & Legality Issues

5 January 2011 at 9:42 pm (News, WTF!?) (, , , , )


The ‘Golden Radio Voice’ guy — who went from homeless to overnight Internet sensation — is struggling to board a flight to NYC because he doesn’t have ID … according to his rep (yep, he’s got one now).

Ted Williams’ peeps tell us Ted is currently at the courthouse in Columbus, OH trying to get a copy of his birth certificate.

Ted is supposed to be in New York tomorrow for an interview on “Today” — but since he’s been homeless for more than four years he doesn’t have ID — so he’s been unable to board a flight.

It’s the first bad news Williams has had in 24 hours. He’s gotten a job offer, a home offer, and a free trip home to visit his mom — all because of the YouTube clip that went viral.

Ted’s rep says having to reestablish identity is a common problem for the homeless. Let’s hope someone has a plan B to get Ted to NYC. [SOURCE]
