Attempts to reach Tim Williams, who has appeared in numerous movies and television shows in his career before becoming famous with Trivago, was unsuccessful.


HOUSTON, Texas — 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.

Williams failed a field sobriety test and submitted to a blood drawer, she said.

He was charged with misdemeanor driving while intoxicated and his bail was set at $100.

When asked about Williams’ arrest, a Trivago spokesperson told CNN in a statement: “At this stage, we do not have the full details of the situation, but we want to make clear that Trivago treats such incidents very seriously and strongly condemns drinking and driving which poses a risk to others and goes against the Trivago culture.”
