Michael Phelps Arrested For DUI
According to TMZ reports:
Michael Phelps was arrested for driving under the influence in Baltimore, Maryland early this morning … TMZ Sports has learned.
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.
Our sources say Phelps was hauled to a nearby station where he was booked for DUI — and was eventually released.
Cops say Phelps was charged with DUI, excessive speeding and crossing double lane lines.
It’s Michael’s 2nd DUI arrest — he was popped in Maryland in 2004 when he was 19-years-old. He struck a plea deal with prosecutors and plead guilty in exchange for 18 months probation.
We’ve made multiple calls to Michael’s reps — but they would not take our calls.
…head shot, drank.
