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.

“It’s probably the most afraid I’ve ever felt in my life,” the 30-year-old Olympic gold medalist told Sports Illustrated.

“Mentally, I was over,” the swimmer said of the 2008 Olympics. “I didn’t want to do it anymore. I forced myself to do something that I really didn’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.” 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.
