Headed to treatment after DUI

5 Oct, 2014

Phelps is taking a break from swimming to attend treatment after being charged with his second DUI on October 2. Phelps:

The past few days have been extremely difficult. 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.
