Michael Phelps Was

Raven at the Crash Scene

8/14/2009 3:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has obtained this photo of Michael Phelps at the scene of his car crash last night -- where judging by his jersey, it appears he was supporting his hometown Baltimore Ravens earlier in the evening.


Cops say Phelps -- who was wearing the jersey of defensive superstar Ed Reed -- was not at fault for the accident. The Ravens beat the Washington Redskins at their pre-season home opener around 7:30 PM. The accident occurred around 9:00 PM.

A police spokesman tells TMZ a Honda ran a red light and struck Phelps' Cadillac Escalade, before bouncing off and hitting a parked car.

The police spokesman told us "If he was impaired, you can bet your bottom dollar he would've been taken in. We don't tolerate that."

WJZ13 shot footage of Phelps inside an ambulance giving his official statement to police -- we're told he was "very respectful of the process."

So he wasnt smoking pot? Okay, I will accept the police report. Seriously speaking though I wont mind getting some of the pot he once used so I can also break a few world records in swimming.

Nookies-looks like the Honda ran the light and the Escalade hit it. Think the story reads the Honda did the bouncing and hit the parked car not the Escalade.
