Phelps Apologizes

Olympian swimmer Michael Phelps is apparently setting down the bong permanently, apologizing yesterday after photos of him smoking marijuana surfaced: “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,” he said. “For this, I am sorry. I promise my fans and the public it will not happen again." In 2004, Phelps pleaded guilty to drunk-driving charges in Maryland.
