Michael Phelps Cited For Baltimore Car Crash

Champion Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps will be cited by police in his hometown of Baltimore in connection with a car accident he was involved in on Thursday night.


Baltimore Police plan to cite the gold medalist for driving without a driver’s license and for not having established residency in Maryland after he presented them with an expired Maryland license, The Associated Press reports. Michael will not be fined, but is required to appear in court.

Amanda Virkus, the driver of the Honda Accord that collided with Michael’s black 2007 Cadillac Escalade, will be cited for failure to obey a red light and causing an accident, says Baltimore Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi. Those citations carry a maximum penalty of a $180 fine and three points on a driver’s license.
