The investigation into Olympian Michael Phelps' bong rip has officially smoked out.
The most decorated Olympic athlete in history will not face criminal charges after being photographed with his lips to a water-pipe some believe to have contained marijuana. The sheriff pursuing Phelps' case, South Carolina officer Leon Lott, announced the investigation's end Monday afternoon at a nationally-televised press conference.
After making eight arrests and promising to follow-up on possible legal penalties for Phelps, the sheriff concluded there was not enough evidence to pursue the swimmer any further, even as speculation on and criticism of the Richland County cop ran rampant.
"I think they should leave him the f--k alone," writer and comedian Mario Cantone told New York Magazine. "I think it’s appalling, I think that that sheriff is like that guy that Dom DeLuise played in The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas, you know, he’s just not stopping and he’s trying to arrest everybody."
