Ty Pennington arrested for DUI

May 7, 2007

The host of ABC’s Extreme Makeover Home Edition, Ty Pennington, was arrested over the weekend in Los Angeles on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol and drugs. He was later released when he posted the $5000 bail.

Ty released the following statement:

“I made an error in judgment. We all make mistakes, however this is about accountability. Under no circumstances should anyone consume alcohol while driving. I could have jeopardized the lives of others and I am grateful there was no accident or harm done to anyone. This was my wake-up call. I also want to apologize to my fans, ABC Television and my design team for my lapse in judgment and the embarrassment I have caused.”
