Olympic medalist swimmer Michael Phelps has been suspended for SIX months after his arrest for driving while under the influence in Baltimore last week. USA Swimming has also decided to ’86’ Phelps from the 2015 world championship team. SMH, maybe his suspension and time in rehab will give him some time to cool down & not blow down…JK, it’s all love ! But really, jump on it for more details !

The announcement Monday comes nearly a week after Phelps was arrested for driving under the influence, and a day after he said he would enter a six-week treatment program.

Phelps will be suspended from USA Swimming-sanctioned competition for six months, not eligible to compete again until April 6, 2015.

He will also forfeit his funding from USA Swimming for six months, and he will withdraw from the 2015 world championship team. He will not represent the U.S. next August in Kazan, Russia — a major tune-up meet for the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.
