Tim Williams, known to viewers as "the trivago dude, "was arrested in Houston earlier this week after police reported finding him fainting behind the wheel of a vehicle.
Houston Chronicle reports that the actor, a 52-year-old Houston native, was found with his foot on the brake in a shattering lane Wednesday, April 10 at 3:15 pm.
Williams would have failed a sobriety test in the field and would have been tested for blood. He was released on bail of $ 100 and is scheduled to appear again in court on April 17.
KHOU-TV indicates that Williams was sentenced to undergo an assessment of his mental health condition.
Williams has appeared in several TV shows and movies, but is perhaps more recognizable as a television spokesperson Trivago.com, a travel site based in Germany that allows users to compare hotel prices. According to his IMDB page, he represents the company since 2016.
