Micheal Phelps Lets Out Giant Sigh Of Relief…And Pot Smoke

After hearing the news that he wouldn’t be charged for being caught smoking weed at a party, Michael Phelps has announced that he’s “glad this matter is put to rest,” chalking up the incident to a “bad decision.”

The sheriff who chose not to press charges, Leon Lott, also defended his decision by saying, “[Phelps] is not immune from his responsibilities to do what is right. He is also human and can make a mistake.”

Michael’s just lucky that his half-man/half-fish status means he’s out of landlubber jurisdiction. But he needs to watch out because eventually maritime law will catch up with him. Unless he decides to simply return to the underwater city from whence he came.
