Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps was arrested for driving while under the influence early Tuesday morning, according to police.
Phelps, 29, was also charged with excessive speed and crossing double lane lines within the Fort McHenry Tunnel on I-95 in Baltimore, the Maryland Transportation Authority Police said. Police say he was driving 84 mph in a 45-mph zone. He was released.
He has been training for competition in recent months, coming out of retirement after the 2012 London Games.
In 2004 Phelps was arrested when he was 19 for drunken driving and was sentenced to 18 months probation.
In 2009 a photo surfaced of Phelps with a marijuana pipe at a party. He was suspended from competition for three months by USA Swimming.
He’s the most decorated Olympian in history, with 18 Olympic gold medals and 22 overall. He retired from competition briefly after winning four gold in London.
