BALTIMORE (TMZ/WJZ/CBS NEWS)—The Baltimore bullet has been arrested for drunk driving, according to TMZ.
The celebrity gossip website reports Michael Phelps was arrested for driving under the influence in Baltimore City early Tuesday morning.
If TMZ is correct, this would be Phelps’ second DUI arrest.
In 2004, the Olympic gold medalist swimmer was stopped near Salisbury University after running a stop sign. He was charged with DUI, DWI, violation of a license restriction and failure to obey a stop sign. After striking a deal, Phelps was sentenced to 18 months probation after pleading guilty to drunken driving.
“I recognize the seriousness of this mistake,” Phelps said in 2004 before a judge and courtroom of more than 100 spectators. “I’ve learned from this mistake and will continue learning from this mistake for the rest of my life.”
