Ty Pennington says DUI is a "wake up call"
The host of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, Ty Pennington, is doing some serious damage control following a DUI arrest this weekend calling his drunk driving stint "an error in judgment."
While most celebrities would head to rehab, Ty is apologizing.
"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."
At least Pennington is admitting to his mistake rather than pulling a Paris Hilton and blaming his publicist.
We still love you Ty, trust me!
