Michael Phelps, 29, is the most decorated Olympian in history, with 22 medals (18 of them gold) from the 2004, 2008 and 2012 Olympics. And although he “retired” after the London Olympics, the guy is used to a certain joie de vivre. He loves the spotlight.
Let’s say it provides him a certain “high.”
The lackluster pedestrian life might not be enough for Phelps. According to Maryland police, Phelps was “speeding excessively and crossing double lane lines within the Fort McHenry Tunnel on Interstate 95 in Baltimore around 1:40 a.m. Tuesday.”
After a DUI and a good amount of public shame, Phelps decided not to say “no, no, no”: he’s headed to rehab.
