Extreme Pullover: Ty Pennington Arrested For DUI

by at . Comments

Sitting at home and watching the likes of Eve and Busta Rhymes get all this publicity for their DUI arrests, the other D-list stars out there have to be thinking, "What about me?!"

Guess it's no surprise that the super-uncool "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" star, Ty Pennington, was arrested early Saturday morning in Los Angeles on suspicion of being under the influence of alcohol and drugs while driving.

The extremely annoying carpenter, a poor man's (straight) Ryan Seacrest who got his start on the TLC hit "Trading Spaces," was arrested at 12:35 AM. He was released two hours later after posting $5,000 bail.

The Ty Pennington arrest news follows that of Chris Albrecht, the HBO chairman busted on suspicion of assaulting his girlfriend over the weekend.

Chris Albrecht was in Las Vegas for HBO's broadcast of the much-anticipated championship boxing match in which Floyd Mayweather, Jr., defeated Oscar De La Hoya.

That was unexpected enough - even more so than the Rich Eisen-Alycia Lane-Suzy Shuster drama from last week. Nut the Ty Pennington situation shook our staff to its core.

At our daily staff meeting, the chairman and executive editor of our celebrity gossip department assessed the Pennington arrest with the following quote:

"You can't help families move into new homes when wasted. I expect more from Ty."

No doubt millions of American families feel the same way.
