The notorious bong Olympian gold medal swimmer Michael Phelps was photographed smoking has been found and 8 were arrested in an investigation by the Richard County Sheriff's Department.  Phelps himself must be worried about a pending arrest as local police have vowed to do just that. 

WIS News in South Carolina, where the incident allegedly took place, reports that the owner of the bong was trying to sell it on eBay for $100,000. 

Phelps is not one of those charged at this point, but the sheriff's department has strong evidence that matches the photo to the house on Blossom Street.
Poker icon, Doyle Brunson, who recently mentored Phelps on the game, had this to say about the Olympian:

"Michael Phelps is getting a lot of flak about his picture smoking dope.  It's too bad, he is a nice kid but he has to realize his every move is scrutinized and he can't make mistakes like that.  He has lost lots of money because he has lost some major endorsement deals.  I think Michael will get back on track. Remember, he is a 23 year old kid."
