TY PENNINGTON PLEADS NO CONTEST IN COURT

Extreme Makeover: Home Edition's Ty Pennington pleaded no contest in court Friday, May 25, to charges of driving with a blood-alcohol level of .08% or higher. The other charge against him, driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs, was dismissed.

Pennington, who was arrested in Venice, Calif. on May 5, said, "I'm happy to bring closure to my recent court proceedings. Drinking and driving is never acceptable. I have pleaded no contest and will abide by the court's ruling. I hope this experience can help others as much as it has helped me."
