The voice may be velvety, but the past is checkered.

According to The Smoking Gun, homeless-man-turned-Internet-sensation Ted Williams, 53, has a rap sheet that includes theft, robbery, escape, forgery and drug possession. The Brooklyn native has at least six mug shots.

As recently as July, a local businessman called the police on Williams and a female friend who refused to leave the premises, alleging Williams had become an “ongoing problem.”
