Golden Voice Continues Drinking

The Associated Press is reporting that the man with the "golden voice" who was previously homeless, has begun drinking again.  Just goes to show that without treatment, returning to the trough is virtually impossible.  People with drinking problems tend to surround themselves with people who enable the problem - those who address the issue are considered the enemy.

From the story:
Williams and his daughter were held at the Hollywood police station for less than an hour and they were not arrested, Massey said.
She declined to name Williams' daughter, but a statement from "Entertainment Tonight" identified her as Janey Williams.
Ted Williams told ET in a Tuesday night show that it was a family gathering that got out of control.
"I wanted to bring it to a close by just saying 'shut the hell up and let me talk to your mother.' When that was said out of my mouth my daughter exploded, just erupted into this jump up in my face type of thing, fists started flying, none of which were mine, none of which were mine, but it could have escalated to the point where it could have gotten really ugly. So in the process of doing that, I got scratched on my face," he told ET.
Janey Williams told ET she was angry because her father, a recovering alcoholic and drug addict, had resumed drinking.
"He has consumed at least a bottle of Gray Goose a night. That's not including the Coronas he ordered, that's not including the Budweisers he ordered, the other alcohol, the wines. He drinks heavily," she said.
