Los Angeles, California – May 5, 2007. Ty Pennington was arrested for DUI on May 5, and registered a 0.14 breath test sample. Ty has since entered into a plea agreement with the city attorney of Los Angeles. Ty must pay a fine, accept a 90 day license suspension, perform community service and remain on DUI probation for three years.
Ty Pennington was very open about his misjudgment admitting it was a mistake that, “…could have jeopardized the lives of others…” He mentions he has learned from the experience and hope others learn from this incident as well. As Ty puts it, “Drinking and driving is never acceptable.”
Ty Pennington is the star of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. His work and heart bring joy and hope to many that have lost both. Even the best of humanity can drink and drive.
Support the call to make Ignition Interlock Devices as standard equipment for all automobiles operated in the United States. This will save lives, and will prevent good people from making the DUI error in judgment.
