Michael Phelps Arrested For DUI

Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps was arrested this morning for DUI after driving almost 40 mph over the speed limit while almost twice the legal limit. TMZ reports:

Our sources tell us … the USA Olympic legend was pulled over around 1:40 AM in his white Land Rover. We’re told he bombed his field sobriety test … and his B.A.C. was almost twice the legal limit.
Officials just issued a statement saying Phelps was initially pulled over for going 84 in a 45 … and during the stop, the officer noticed he was hammered.

Keep in mind, Michael Phelps is really good at swimming, and since swimming is (kind of) a sport, we as a society have deemed fit to see that he receives millions of dollars so he can afford the best legal counsel and face little to no consequences for his actions. So don’t question sports or what people in sports do whenever they’re not in the place where the sports happen. It doesn’t count unless it’s sports.
