Olympic Gold Medalist Michael Phelps was busted— smoking marijuana.
Phelps admitted smoking weed at a party in South Carolina, after a picture was released in a British newspaper this weekend.
In a statement released to the Associated Press, Phelps acknowledged quote "regrettable behavior" and "bad judgment."
The 23-year old won a record eight gold medals at the Beijing Olympics this past Summer.
The Olympics sparked if you will- "Phelps Mania."
The man was idolized by many people.
Since the news of him doing drugs, he has said, he won't do it again.
