Michael Phelps won’t be charged for bong photo. GASP!

In a shocking move of logic and reason, Michael Phelps will not be facing charges from the photo of him smoking a bong at a November 2008 frat party. The Richland County Sheriff’s office didn’t have enough evidence to prosecute the Olympic swimmer or anyone else at the party, according to People:

“I’m glad this matter is put to rest. But there are also some important lessons that I’ve learned,” Phelps, 23, said in a statement Monday.
“For me, it’s all about recognizing that I used bad judgment and it’s a mistake I won’t make again. For young people especially – be careful about the decisions you make. One bad decision can really hurt you and the people you care about.”

And that bad decision was admitting to a photo that no one could even tell was you – like an idiot. Take note, young people, deny everything. Otherwise, there goes your Kelloggs endorsement, and then who’s going to buy you a Ferrari full of hookers and blow? (Not counting Jared from Subway.)
