Michael Phelps Arrested for DUI

News — September 30, 2014 at 11:51 am by

Dammit, I hate to see a positive force go down like this. According to reports, Phelps was pulled over around 1:40 a.m. this morning while driving 84 in a 45. He apparently bombed the sobriety test. Though drunk driving is for the birds, and Phelps made a huge error in judgement, let’s not be too harsh on the guy. But seriously Mike, you got a gazillion gold medals, hire a driver.

Update, Phelps released a statement:

“Earlier this morning, I was arrested and charged with DUI, excessive speeding and crossing double lane lines. I understand the severity of my actions and take full responsibility. I know these words may not mean much right now but I am deeply sorry to everyone I have let down.”

  1. “Though drunk driving is for the birds, and Phelps made a huge error in judgement, let’s not be to harsh on the guy.” Really?!? Im pretty sure we should be more harsh on him than any average individual. Just because he’s famous doesn’t mean he should get any breaks.

  2. Dudes a douche bag.
