Pennington Apologizes for DUI Error
US TV star Ty Pennington has apologized for making "an error in
judgment" after being arrested on suspicion of driving under the
influence of alcohol and drugs.
The 41-year-old, who hosts Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, was stopped
by police in Los Angeles at 12.35am on Saturday (05May07) morning.
He was released two hours later after posting $5,000 bail.
In a statement, Pennington says, "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."
