Tuesday Morning

A Maryland Transportation Authority (MDTA) Police Officer operating stationary radar device on southbound I-395 leaving Baltimore City clocked a White 2014 Land Rover going in excesses of 84 mph in a 45 mph zone.

The Officer followed the vehicle onto northbound I-95 and initiated a stop. Michael Phelps was identified as the driver by his driver’s license and appeared to be under the influence.

Mr. Phelps was unable to satisfactorily perform a series of field sobriety tests. The statement says the officer administered field sobriety tests to Phelps. Asked to do a one-leg stand, the statement says, “the operator stated ‘that’s not happening.'”

Mr. Phelps was then taken to jail but was cooperative throughout the process.


Authorities reported that Phelps also failed a Breathalyzer test, but would not confirm the results. Phelps was later released.

This is the second time Phelps has been charged with a DUI. The first charge came in 2004, when Phelps was 19.
