HOUSTON (CNN) — Timothy Williams, best known as the pitchman for travel site “Trivago,” was arrested this week after Houston police say they found him passed out behind the wheel of a car in a moving lane of traffic.
“He was passed out with his foot on the brake in a moving lane of traffic,” said Houston Police spokeswoman Jodi Silva. Police got the call Wednesday afternoon.READ MORE: San Bernardino Investigators Say Loma Linda Sexual Predator May Have More Underage Victims That Have Not Yet Come Forward

CNN has reached out to both Tim Williams and Trivago and is waiting on a response.
Williams has had acting roles on “Cosby Show” (it ended up on the cutting room floor) “The Sopranos” and “Law and Order.” But he shot to fame as the rough-and-tumble pitchman for “Trivago.”
In later ads, he came across as more polished — his hair nicely tousled and a fashionable touch of facial stubble.MORE NEWS: 'Just Not Fair': Gascón Drops Bid For Death Penalty In Killing Of 10-Year-Old Anthony Avalos
