Towson’s own Michael Phelps has received a six-month suspension from USA Swimming for his recent DUI arrest. It was Phelps’ second DUI, and the second time that he has been suspended by USA Swimming. He was suspended for three months back in 2009 when a photo was released of him ripping a killer bong hit. Six months seems like a stiff, but fair punishment considering his previous incidents, and how fucking dumb it is to get a DUI when you are a multi-millionaire. Phelps has entered a six-week treatment program, which will hopefully help him get his act together. I’d really like to see one more Olympic run from Phelps, but this clearly makes his comeback road trickier.
