An innocent bong photo of Michael Phelps snapped on a cellphone camera during a party near the University of South Carolina has created a witch hunt. Police in Richland County arrested several people in connection with the party, with sexy results:
The lawyers said the two clients were renters at the house where the party apparently took place, although they were not at the party. The two have since moved and were arrested after police executed a search warrant at their new home and accused them of having a small amount of marijuana there.
“After they arrested him, they didn’t ask him, ‘Where did you get the marijuana?’ or ‘Who sold it to you?’ Almost all the questions they asked him were about Michael Phelps,” Harpootlian said.
OK, maybe without sexy results. Still, arresting people due to marijuana possession? That sounds like an excellent use of police time. Can’t wait until Phelps is brought in and charged, I’m sure the sheriff is going to be smiling for those cameras! Let’s hope justice prevails!
