    Is this the third one now?

    HONOLULU (AP) — 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, 39, 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.”

    Well, they're lost, ain't they?

    Man, I know those "heartfelt apologies" are all about celebrity image control, but why not just keep it real: "Yeah, I was out having a good time, and I guess I had too good of a time. Sorry."

    Kim is the fourth member of the cast of "Lost" to be arrested.

    Michelle Rodriguez and Cynthia Watros were arrested for DUI in December 2005, when police spotted their vehicles weaving along a local road. Both pleaded guilty, and were lost from the show soon after.

    In September of 2006, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje was arrested and accused of disobeying a police officer and driving without a license. Those charges were later dropped -- and then he was dropped from the show as his character was killed off by a crazy smoke monster.

    Gotta give the Honolulu PD a lot of props for keeping the roads of Oahu safe.
    Too many mai tais, you'd think these celebs could hire a limo?

    Disposable income + Fame + Hawaii = DUI

    Yep. As everyone I've ever known who has moved to Hawaii can tell you, it's great for about six months, and then the realization hits you that, as great as the place is, you're on an island. I can only imagine the additional factors of being newly rich and famous.

    The other 3 were killed off. So I guess that Sun will be a free woman soon?
