The pitchman for travel website Trivago has been arrested. The details surrounding the arrest are bizarre.

According to Fox News:

The “Trivago guy,” best known for appearing in television commercials to help travelers find their “ideal hotel for the best price,” was arrested Wednesday in Houston for allegedly driving while intoxicated, authorities said.

Actor Timothy Williams, 52, was found passed out behind the steering wheel of a car around 3:15 p.m., Houston police said. He was in a moving lane of traffic with a foot on the brake, according to police.

The charming pitchman for the German discount travel website then allegedly failed a sobriety test and submitted a blood sample to test for alcohol before he was charged, FOX26 Houston reported.

Williams, who grew up in Houston, was ordered to have a mental health or intellectual disability assessment, before he was released on $100 bond, the Houston Chronicle reported.

Although he is famous for the Trivago commercials Williams has appeared in the "Sopranos" and "Law and Order."
