Gold medal trouble, Michael Phelps busted for DUI

Champion drinker? not so much.
BALTIMORE, MARYLAND -- Swimming superstar Michael Phelps had been out gambling before he was arrested for a DUI near Baltimore.
The most decorated Olympian of all time had "red, bloodshot" eyes, according to the police statement of probable cause and officers said his speech was "much mouth."
Phelps, who recently came out of retirement, announcing his intention to compete at the 2016 Rio Olympics, also told cops he had "three or four drinks" and had just left the Horseshoe Casino.
He had "difficulty with his balance" when officers asked him to walk heel to toe in a straight line and when asked to stand on one leg he told officers "that's not happening."
A later breathalyser revealed he had a blood alcohol level of .14, well over the state's .08 limit.
