Epic Carnival | Where Sports and Pop Culture Collide: Michael Phelps is also a bad beer pong player

Michael Phelps is also a bad beer pong player

Apparently Michael Phelps likes to do more than take long slow rips off a bong when he attends parties. He also likes to gamble some of his hard earned cash on beer pong...

Michael Phelps wins no gold medals for party games. At the same South Carolina house party where he was snapped sucking on a bong, the Olympics hero lost a pile of money betting in a high-stakes session of the drinking game beer pong, in which players wing pingpong balls into plastic cups. "I saw Phelps pull out a roll, a bank-wrapped $2,000. He said, 'I'll match the $2,000,'" onlooker Michael Whitworth told the State newspaper. "Good ol' Phelpsie lost it, too."
In other Phelps-related bong news, the diligent and deep-thinking South Carolina fuzz has arrested eight people (yes, eight) in connection with Michel Phelps' photo seen 'round the world.
[Sheriff Leon] Lott says the picture indicated a law was being broken in his jurisdiction. He said he couldn't ignore the violation just because Phelps is rich and famous.

We've now learned that since investigators began trying to build a case, they've made eight arrests: seven for drug possession and one for distribution. These are arrests that resulted as the sheriff's department served search warrants.

We've also learned that the department has located and confiscated that bong.

Sources say the owner of the bong was trying to sell it on eBay for as much as $100,000.

The owner, who wasn't even at the party, is one of the eight now charged.
And now the people of Richland County, South Carolina can now sleep at night.
