Michael Phelps Announces He's Going to Rehab After DUI Arrest

Michael Phelps has taken to Twitter to announce he’ll be checking into a rehab facility.

“The past few days have been extremely difficult.” the 29-year-old Olympic swimmer wrote on his Twitter account. “I recognize that this is not my first lapse in judgment, and I am extremely disappointed with myself.”

“I’m going to take some time away to attend a program that will provide the help I need to better understand myself. Swimming is a major part of my life, but right now I need to focus my attention on me as an individual and do the necessary work to learn from this experience and make better decisions in the future,” Michael concluded.

Michael was arrested for a DUI late last month after failing a sobriety test in Maryland.

    Something tells me he’s only doing this to impress the judge and avoid a harsher sentence.
