Michael Phelps Opens Up About DUI Arrests & Rehab in New Interview

Michael Phelps is opening up about going to rehab after his second DUI arrest.

โ€œItโ€™s probably the most afraid Iโ€™ve ever felt in my life,โ€ the 30-year-old Olympic gold medalist told Sports Illustrated.

“Mentally, I was over,โ€ the swimmer said of the 2008 Olympics. โ€œI didnโ€™t want to do it anymore. I forced myself to do something that I really didnโ€™t want to do anymore. I was in a really dark place, not wanting to be alive anymore. I look back now, I lived in a bubble for a long time. I wound up uncovering a lot of things about myself. . . I saw myself as the athlete that I was, but not as a human being.โ€ Michael was arrested in September of 2014 for the second time and charged with a DUI.

Michael is currently training for the 2016 Rio Olympics. He is a 22-time medalist in swimming.
