    • I’m just not sure how they can arrest him, when all they have is a photo of him holding a bong. They have no proof he owned the pot, or the bong, or really that he even was smoking pot. I mean, the head shops all claim their pipes are for “tobacco,” how can the cops prove it wasn’t?

    • No that’s stupid. They don’t have to prove anything through because he opened his stupid mouth and confess that it was pot in the bong.  But it’s a waste of time, either he learned his lesson or not, and if he didn’t they’ll get another chance.

    • Arresting him would be a waste of taxpayer money. They should concentrate on real criminals.

    • Maybe he can get an endorsement deal from Zig Zag!

      If they‘re going to go after him, they may as well start scouring Facebook for all the pics of underaged drinking.

    • And they shouldn’t take his medals, he earned those weed or no weed.  It’s not a performance enhancing drug, so it did not help him, actually it probably slowed him down, imagine what he could have done not smokin pot!

    • How’s that dumb ? Almost everybody at that age smokes from time to time. There was no harm done to others or even himself. This appears to be purely recreational and, in addition, strictly part of his private life. The sponsors recognized this immediately and were very consequent by reiterating their support to a very, very gifted athlete.

      If it had been such a bad thing, make no mistake, these guys would have deserted him in a nanosecond; instead they recognized the fact that it is so widespread a behaviour among their base clients and not anything to be frowned upon.

      And don’t give me this “role model” [Link Removed] where public figures have to be perfect in every public way: Kids don’t need or care about Phelps when they are considering a way to escape their reality for a while, and they KNOW public images are just a front anyway.

    • Personne, I agree with you on the role model issue. In the original post concerning this subject, I quoted Charles Barkley, who said athletes should not be considered role models.  

      Personally I never took my cues from celebrities-well, I did try to dress like Madonna once!estatic

    • No I don’t think they should arrest him.
      I think he is feeling the backlash of what he
      has done by being suspended and also losing
      a hugh contract.

    • personally, leave him alone. He hurt no one and i’d be pissed at the idiot that made the pic public.

      If this is the worse thing he does...then who cares. So many more important things going on!

    • He did lose his Kellogg’s endorsement, well, they chose not to renew it. It expires this month. And the Olympic committee is banning him from competition for a few months.

    • I think the time has come that celebrities and politicians  should know that they should not be treated any different than any other citizen. Illegal is illegal. Michael Vick is in jail for committing an offense and I think Michal Phelp should be accountable also in whichever way smoking pot offense is appropriate.  I am a fan of both of them but I am tired of one standard for regular citizens and another for VIP‘S.

    • No. He’s been suspended for 3 months in addition to press getting a hold of this, etc. There’s nothing to gain from arresting him~ he isn’t a criminal.

    • I think that Michael Phelps should know better to smoke from a bong at a party with his sudden rise to fame.  He’s now in the eyes of so many young people who look up to him.  So now what should they think of him?

    • as far as having him arrested...I agree with CindyLou above, a picture isn’t enough evidence to convict him, he could have been smokin anything....therefore, no real proof, unless a witness comes forward and testifies....
