Michael Phelps issues statement about arrest for second DUI

Michael-Phelps

Michael Phelps issued a statement Tuesday via Twitter to address and apologize for his DUI arrest earlier in the morning.

“Earlier this morning, I was arrested and charged with DUI, excessive speeding and crossing double lane lines. I understand the severity of my actions and take full responsibility. I know these words may not mean much right now but I am deeply sorry to everyone I have let down,” Phelps said in the statement.

This is Phelps’ second DUI arrest, which means he shouldn’t get off as easily as he did last time.

Back in 2004, Phelps, then 19, was arrested for DUI and got 18 months probation. I bet his punishment for a second DUI will still be lighter than the punishment most people receive for their first similar offense.
