Trivago spokesman charged with DWI in Houston

Actor Tim Williams, who is best known for being the face of German discount travel website Trivago, has been arrested for allegedly driving while intoxicated in Houston, Texas.

Houston Police say they found him passed out behind the wheel of his vehicle, with a foot on the brake, in a moving lane of traffic Wednesday.

He then reportedly failed a sobriety test and was taken to a processing center where he submitted to a blood test before being charged with a DWI.

He was arrested and bail was set at a hundred dollars.

He was scheduled to appear in court on April 17.

The actor urges viewers to 'find the ideal hotel for the best price'.


A Trivago statement Friday says the company didn't have full details on the situation but treats such incidents very seriously and strongly condemns drinking and driving as a risk to others and against the Trivago culture.

Williams is mostly known for his roles in Trivago.com commercials, which began in 2016.

KHOU-TV reports that Williams has been ordered to undergo a mental health assessment.

CNN has has also reached out to Tim Williams and is waiting on a response.

He started playing guitar as a child, inspired by bands like Aerosmith, Led Zeppelin, and KISS.

Police say Williams' foot was on the brake and he was in a moving lane of traffic, according to the Houston Chronicle.
