Olympian gold medalist Michael Phelps blood alcohol was reportedly at a level of .14, which is almost doubled the .08 limit. 

Phelps was arrested early Tuesday in Maryland on a DUI charge. He was officially charged for DUI, driving with excessive speed and crossing the double lane lines.

An officer saw Phelps' Range Rover heading into a tunnel at 84 mph (in a 45 mph zone) and pulled him over after a toll plaza. The officer asked Phelps to conduct three separate sobriety test. Phelps failed the first two and declined to even attempted the third.

Phelps took to Twitter on Tuesday issuing an apology "Earlier this morning, I was arrested and charged with DUI, excessive speeding and crossing double lane lines. I understand the severity of my actions and take full responsibility. I know these words may not mean much right now but I am deeply sorry to everyone I have let down. 

Phelps is a 22-time Olympic medalist, 18 of which are Gold Medals.
