Kim apologizes for drunken driving arrest


HONOLULU -- Daniel Dae Kim, one of the stars on ABC's "Lost," has apologized for his arrest on suspicion of drunken driving.

Kim said he was deeply ashamed and embarrassed and will fully cooperate with police, in a statement issued Friday by his publicist, Cindy Guagenti.

"It saddens me to know that I jeopardized the welfare of the kind people of Hawaii, a community that I love and call my home," the statement said.

Honolulu police arrested Kim early Thursday after an officer spotted him driving erratically at about 2:30 a.m. He was booked at the downtown police station and released after posting bail.

He had a blood-alcohol level of 0.168, twice the legal limit.

Kim is set to appear in Oahu District Court on Nov. 23.

"To my friends, family, colleagues and fans, thank you for your kind words of support." Kim said. "To those I have disappointed I can only ask that you accept my heartfelt apologies. I am truly, truly sorry."
