Six-time Olympic champion Michael Phelps was arrested last week and charged with drunken driving. A trooper saw the 19-year-old swimming sensation go
through a stop sign Thursday night, state police said Monday. The trooper saw signs of intoxication and arrested Phelps for driving under the
influence, police said.
Phelps also was charged with violation of a license restriction and failure to obey a stop sign. The legal drinking age in Maryland is 21.
