    Extreme Makeover: Home Edition star arrested for DUI...

    Pennington on DUI: This Is My Wake-Up Call
    By by Marcus Errico Today at 5:53 am

    Ty Pennington's next remodeling project: His image.

    The tool belt-sporting carpenter of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition fame issued a mea culpa Monday after logging some time in a Los Angeles jail over the weekend on a driving-under-the-influence charge.

    Pennington, 42, was arrested about 12:15 a.m. Saturday by Los Angeles Police Department officers on the city's Westside, a department spokeswoman said Monday. He was released at 2:50 a.m. after posting $5,000 bail. A court hearing on the misdemeanor is set for June 4.

    No further details were immediately available, but the TV handyman was quick to work damage control.

    "I made an error in judgment. We all make mistakes, however this is about accountability," he said in a statement. "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."

    After stints as a carpenter, graphic artist and model, Pennington hit the big time on TLC's Trading Spaces as the resident hammer-wielding hunk before graduating to Extreme Makeover. He's won two Emmys as host of the hit feel-good home-improvement show and parlayed that success into a signature line of home furnishings at Sears.

    He also wrote the best-selling 2003 book Ty's Tricks: Home Repair Secrets Plus Cheap and Easy Projects to Transform Any Room, which features a chapter titled "How I Built a Champagne Home on a Beer Budget."

    People should be judged on the good they do and not so much on their mistakes. People make mistakes. It's alway easier to point the finger and call someone an idiot. Just because you are famous doesn't mean you can't make mistakes. When people are famous others look at them like they are perfect and lead perfect lives without ever having any problems. That is not the case. Famous people are like anyone else. We all go through hard times. We all make mistakes. We all fall, and we all get back up. The biggest thing is how long someone stays knocked down.

    He made a mistake, apologized, and it's not my job to judge another man.

    Just my thoughts.

    I wasn't judging him either - just pointing out the fact that he got the DUI...

    I really can't say I'm shocked to hear this. . .
    When they did that episode in South Dakota, Ty partied with a bunch of college kids at SDSU. . .
    or at least, thats the rumor

    I think that getting a DUI is just a numbers game.

    We all know that we all have drank and driven so I can't judge that queen on extreme makeover.
