Shock and awe as legendary Olympian Michael Phelps was caught smoking a weed bong at a bar last night. The shocking revelation was first revealed by News of the World.
After the story was published by the British tabloid, Mr. Phelps issued this following statement:
“I engaged in behavior which was regrettable and demonstrated bad judgment. I’m 23 years old and despite the successes I’ve had in the pool, I acted in a youthful and inappropriate way, not in a manner people have come to expect from me. For this, I am sorry. I promise my fans and the public it will not happen again.”
Michael Phelps earned an estimated $8 – $10 million dollars last year from endorsements alone, and is looked up to by many youth due to his amazing career, including being a 14-time Olympic swimming champion at his young age.
Hopefully dark things like weed bongs and beer drinking pictures do not continue to plague this American Olympian.
