The "man with the golden voice" also left his mark on film.

Mug-shot photos of Ted Williams were published today by the website The Smoking Gun. A six-pack of shots that date back more than two decades, the shots were taken after Williams was arrested on a variety of charges, including forgery, drug possession, theft, robbery and escape, The Smoking Gun reported.

The Smoking gun has released mug shots of Ted Williams dating back more than two decades.
As the details of Williams' arrest record begin to emerge, the intense good will shown to him by the country may start to turn. Perhaps Surge Desk's own speculation as to which actor will play Williams on film was a bit premature, or maybe his story just became that much more redemptive.

Williams himself has made no secret that his life took a wrong turn as he began to succumb to a life guided by frequent drug and alcohol use.
