We know where Michael Phelps was around 1:40 a.m. on Tuesday morning:

The Olympic swimmer was about 84 miles per hour in a 45 miles per hour zone and, therefore, got arrested on suspicion of drunk driving.

But now we also know where Phelps was for the eight hours prior to this incident:

According to TMZ sources, Phelps was at the Horseshoe Casino in Baltimore. He arrived at 5 p.m. and sat in a VIP room, reportedly playing Blackjack and Poker.

The record-setting Gold Medalist left at approximately 1 a.m. was was drinking beer for most of the night, according to witnesses.

Eighteen-time gold medalist Michael Phelps was arrested for DUI around 2 am on Tuesday morning after being pulled over for going 84 in a 45 MPH zone.

Phelps addressed the incident on Twitter today:

"Earlier this morning I was arrested and charged with DUI, excessive speeding and crossing double lane lines," Phelps tweeted.

"I understand the severity of my actions and take full responsibility. I know these words may not mean much now but I am deeply sorry to everyone I have let down."

Well, at least he owned up to it, though it's not like he had much choice.

There's no word yet on what sort of punishment Phelps can expect to face.

TMZ is reporting that Olympic gold medalist Michael Phelps was arrested for DUI while driving in Maryland late last night.

Phelps was reportedly doing 84 in a 45 mph zone when he was stopped by officers who immediately realized the record breaking swimmer was very drunk.

Sources say Phelps didn't make it through his field sobriety and a breathalyzer indicated that his BAC was nearly twice the legal limit.

This isn't the first time Phelps has been busted for driving under the influence.

In 2004, a then 19-year-old Phelps was pulled over and found to be intoxicated. He struck a plea deal and got off with 18 months probation.

Phelps cleaned up his act and went on to win an astonishing 18 Olympic gold medals.

In 2008 the so-called Flying Fish slipped up again, however, as Phelps was caught smoking weed while partying with college kids.

Michael Phelps might be best known racking up gold at the Olympics, but it looks as though the record-breaking swimmer might be qualified for a second career as a nude model.

Phelps stripped down for ESPN Magazine's annual Body Issue and while the Baltimore Bullet may be semi-retired from the world of competitive swimming, from the looks of it, he hasn't been neglecting his gym duties. 

Phelps dated Win McMurry, and played the field with a number of other women since dominating the Beijing Olympics way back in 2008, and it's not hard to see why he's been able to attract the pool groupies. 

With no major competitions on the horizon, Phelps is no longer obligated to remain aerodynamic, so he must have shaved his unfortunate mustache simply because, well..it looked really weird.

Whether you're high on life or just high, 4/20 is the day for you.

It's a de facto tribute to all things marijuana and we know more than a handful of celebrities who'll be smoking some bud today.

While there are definitely more than 20 celebrity stoners we could have listed here, this seems like as good a place as any to start.

So, while they roll up a joint and try to work on a Giant M&M Cookies Recipe or a Funfetti Cupcakes Recipe ahead of time, you can roll up a chair and flip through this slideshow.

Snoop Dogg
"You knowz mofo be rollin' up summa dat dank ass sticky-icky-icky and gettin' fizaded off the bubonic chronic right muthaf--kin' now." Uhhh, what Snoop said.

Notably not pictured? Seth Rogen

Because of Seth Rogen's well-documented devotion to the doobie, and those who love to get high with the actor, he gets a slideshow of its own.

Check that out after the jump ...

Retirement from swimming apparently suits Michael Phelps well in the girlfriend department - he's dating Golf Channel's Win McMurry - and the facial hair realm.

As mustaches go, Phelps' is fairly epic by modern standards:

Michael Phelps' Mustache

Debuted within an adorable, black-and-white photograph of the Olympic champion and his niece, the new look definitely suits him, don't you think?

Phelps posted the shot on his Instagram today, and we're not sure if it just works because he has 87 gold medals, or because it's just that awesome.

Either way, though, it's en emphatic win. Don't you agree?

What do you think of Michael Phelps' mustache?

He's a winner in the swimming pool and, apparently, in the dating pool.

Record-breaking Olympian Michael Phelps walked the ESPY Awards red carpet last night with Golf Channel personality Win McMurry as his date, the same blonde beauty for whom he caddied in May.

"Thanks @MichaelPhelps - great caddy work this week! Fun times," she Tweeted at the time, along with a photo of the pair.

4/20. Four-twenty. April 20th. Call it what you want, this is one great day to be high ... on life here at THG. Or on marijuana, from sea to shining sea.

Its origins are often debated, but what's undisputed is that 4/20 has become a de facto holiday. Surely many a celebrity will be partaking on Saturday.

Such as ...

Snoop Dogg on 4/20

Snoop Dogg. You knowz mofo be rollin' up summa dat dank ass sticky-icky-icky and gettin' fizaded off the bubonic chronic right muthaf--kin' now.

Honestly. Snoop's almost as synonymous with weed as he is with early gangsta rap.

Willie Nelson. On 4/30, Nelson will turn 80, or nearly the amount of times he lights up in a given week. Hey, at least he's totally up front about it.
