Phelps After Crash

99 Bottle of Beer

on the Wall

8/16/2009 3:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael PhelpsMichael Phelps may not have been at fault for his car accident this week, but he wasn't exactly squeaky clean, either.

Phelps will be cited for driving with an expired license, which was from Michigan, the NY Post is reporting. Phelps will have to appear before a judge, though no date has been set so far.

Phelps also admitted to police he had a beer about an hour before the crash. He was not given a Breathalyzer test on scene.

Phelps was involved in a two-car accident in Baltimore on Thursday. It was ruled the other driver ran a red light, causing the wreck.

No matter where you are in the country...if a cop asks you how much you have had to drink after being behind the wheel & you say... 1 beer an hour ago ....while wearing a football jersey, driving an escalade with pimped wheels....I guarantee you that you WILL be asked to take a breathalyzer & you are still going to the station for processing... Especially in Baltimore.

WHY is your site hounding Phelps?

Leave him alone! He is young and likes to unwind a bit after heavy training.

Phelps is straight and you will never have him, Harvy. So just forget about him and TOM Baady.

It is a pity that with all his opportunities, Michael Phelps appears NOT to learn from past mistakes.

Hopefully it will not take the death of an innocent person before this guy is called to order, as has been the unfortunate end in so many other celebrity cases.

This kid won't be happy till he kills someone, apparently!
He's not licensed to drive in the state he's living in? who does that? snotnose instant celebs who think they're above it all! & after he tells the cops he had a beer an hour ago they just look at him & decide he's perfectly capable of driving, based on what? esp, or gold medals? shame on them, shame on that city for allowing this fug ugly kid to get away with something illegal, & shame on homely boy. He's gonna be sorry, & when he can't swim for profit anymore, that God awful looking mug is not gonna carry him very far! Not to mention I think we're all pretty clear about it now..Michael Phelps WILL drink & drive...and who knows what else?

who dat    

Face it the guy is white trash. Yes, anyone else who admitted to drinking before would have been given a field test. Typical star treatment. The laws only apply for the middle class & poor.

Sure, one beer.

He should've been tested.

Athletes seem to get away with stuff even more than actors.

This guy looks like the missing link. I'm thinking this guy has the IQ of a grape.

And his mother is butt-ugly too. She needs to go away.

Have any of you actually read what happened? HE IS NOT AT FAULT. The other driver ran a RED light. Yes he had a beer with food at least 1 hour prior to the accident but one beer with food does not generally make someone drunk nor is it over the legal limit. People...just get off the poor guys back. Why don't you all start complaining about the woman who RAN THE RED LIGHT and caused the accident. She is at fault. He is not!!!!!!!!!!!
