Human-fish hybrid and Olympic gold medalist swimmer Michael Phelps announced in a series of tweets on Sunday morning that after getting his second DUI in ten years, he's decided to take some time away to attend a program where he will learn to "better understand" himself.

The athlete was pulled over by police doing 84 mph in a 45 mph zone early Tuesday morning. His blood alcohol level was nearly twice the legal limit, TMZ reports. The gossip outlet also noted that Phelps had been on an "8-hour gambling binge" in Baltimore the night of the incident.
