American swimmer and the most decorated Olympian of all time, Michael Phelps, has been arrested for driving under the influence in his native Baltimore early this morning, Sept. 30.
Officials in Maryland released a statement stating the 29-year-old was initially pulled over around 1:40 A.M. for crossing double lane lines and excessively speeding—at the time, he was driving 84 MPH in a 45 zone.
Once he was pulled over, the officer suspected the swimmer was under the influence. The police said he was unable to perform a series of standard field sobriety tests.
According to the officials, he was cooperative throughout the process and was later released.
This is the Olympian’s second DUI arrest. In 2004, Michael, then 19, struck a deal by pleading guilty to driving while impaired and was given 18-months probation, a $250 fine and—ironically—was ordered to speak to high school students about the dangers of drinking and driving.
