Daniel Dae Kim, the Lost star arrested in Hawaii Thursday on a DUI charge, says he's sorry.

"I am deeply ashamed and embarrassed by the events of Thursday morning," the actor says in a statement to TMZ. "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.

"It is my intention to cooperate fully with the police and I am grateful to them for their sensitivity throughout this matter," Kim adds. "To my friends, family, colleagues and fans, thank you for your kind words of support. To those I have disappointed I can only ask that you accept my heartfelt apologies."

Kim, who plays Jin-Soo Kwon on the ABC series, was arrested around 3 a.m. Thursday morning for allegedly driving drunk in Hawaii, where the show is filmed. He's the latest Lost actor to be charged with drunk driving – Cynthia Watros and Michelle Rodriguez were busted on DUI charges in 2005.
