Tim Williams, known as the "Trivago guy" for his appearance in USA ads for the Germany-based hotel-booking site, faces a drunk driving charge after Houston police found him asleep in his auto in traffic this week.

Houston police said Williams was found behind the wheel of a vehicle Wednesday afternoon in a live lane of traffic with his foot on the brake, the Houston Chronicle reported.

Silva said Williams failed a sobriety test.

"Whether you wear a belt or not, trivago.com can help you find your ideal hotel at a great price". His court appearance is set for April 17 of this year.

It's unclear if Williams will remain the face of the travel site.

Before his breakout role with Trivago, Williams appeared on the Cosby Show as a teenager and The Sopranos.

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