Michael Phelps has apologized for photos of him that leaked onto a British tabloid that shows the Olympic swimmer inhaling (presumably marijuana) from a bong. The photo was taken last November at a South Carolina toga party. According to witnesses he was out of control and wasted all night. And there's even talk of criminal charges.
This isn't uncharted territory for Phelps, who was pulled over for a DUI in 2004 following the Athens Olympics. And this is a guy who's notorious for his womanizing, partying ways dating back to his Michigan days. So what exactly is Michael Phelps apologizing for: being a jerk or that he was caught being a jerk?
