LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps has been arrested in Maryland.

Officers say Phelps is charged with DUI, excessive speed and crossing double lane lines on a Baltimore interstate. Police allegedly clocked the swimmer doing 84-miles-an-hour in a 45-mile-an-hour zone.

Phelps was held and later released.

This is his second DUI arrest. The first in 2004 when he was 19 years old. In that case, Phelps struck a deal with prosecutors and pleaded guilty, in exchange for 18 months of probation.
