LOS ANGELES - Ty Pennington, host of ABC's "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition," was arrested on a misdemeanor charge this weekend, documents show.

Pennington, 42, was booked on suspicion of being under the influence of alcohol and drugs while driving, the TMZ.com Web site reported.

He was arrested shortly after 12:30 a.m. Saturday by the Los Angeles Police Department's West Traffic Division, according to inmate information posted on the county Sheriff's Department Web site.

Pennington was released two hours later after posting $5,000 bail and was due back in court June 4, according to the Web site.

Los Angeles police officials said Monday they had no further information.

Pennington's publicist later released this statement from the host: "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."

Pennington, the former "Trading Spaces" carpenter, is the author of "Ty's Tricks: Home Repair Secrets Plus Cheap and Easy Projects to Transform Any Room," a mixture of handyman tips and how-to projects.

Aw darn! Poor Ty.

I never really have grown to like him. I never watch any of his shows, but I've heard plenty about him.

One time on a school field trip to D.C., we saw Lori from Trading Spaces at an airport! And we all took a picture with her. ;)

What does being gay have to do with this? Gay or not gay, he's still a lush who got caught and is using this to extend his fifteen minutes. Nothing more.
