Michael Phelps In the Clear Over Pot Photo

Dude! Michael Phelps is totally not getting arrested for taking hits from a bong at some frat party.

"Having thoroughly investigated this matter, we do not believe we have enough evidence to prosecute anyone that was present at the November party," Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott said in a press statement.

"I'm glad this matter is put to rest. But there are also some important lessons that I've learned," Michael said in his own statement. "For me, it's all about recognizing that I used bad judgment and it's a mistake I won't make again. For young people especially - be careful about the decisions you make. One bad decision can really hurt you and the people you care about."

Blah, blah, blah. I don't care that he took a bong hit, but all this Preachy McPreacherson stuff seems so insincere. I get that Mikey has a team of people telling him what to say, but it feels so fake. He was probably munching out while writing this up.
