Eighteen-time Olympic gold-medalist Michael Phelps was arrested for DWI in Maryland last week. As a man with multi-million dollar endorsement gigs, he's probably not too worried about the fines. But as our office has learned over the years, a DUI arrest and/or conviction can have many other repercussions. For Phelps, USA Swimming has suspended him and prohibited him from competing in the world championship next year. To read more about it, please read our post here. And if you've been charged with DUI or a related crime, please give us a call to discuss your case.
