  1. Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps, the most decorated Olympian of all time, was arrested early Tuesday morning in Maryland on a DUI charge, according to the Maryland Transportation Authority.

    A Maryland Transportation Authority police officer was operating a stationary radar on southbound I-395 leaving Baltimore when a white 2014 Land Rover passed traveling at 84 mph in a 45-mph zone.

    The officer followed the vehicle onto northbound I-95, through the tunnel and stopped the Land Rover just beyond the tunnel's toll plaza.

    He was unable to pass the tests given to him by the police officer which resulted in the DUI charge in addition to the speeding.

    This was not the first time Phelps has had a DUI problem, however it is the first one in 10 years.. back in 2004 he was given 18 months probation after pleading guilty in Maryland.
