Would You Stand by Phelps If He Were Your Teammate?

Whether Olympian Michael Phelps smoking pot is surprising to you or not, the issue is getting its fair share of attention as everyone is trying to decide what to make of the situation. Phelps's fellow swimmers have issued their two cents and there's a resounding sense of support from the athletes.

Dara Torres remarked, "This in no way, shape, or form diminishes anything he's done," while relay-teammate Jason Lezak expressed his sentiments saying, "Unlike many fair-weather people, I am sticking by him. If my wife and I can help him in any way, we will. I believe he will grow from this and be better person, role model, and teammate."

Phelps's fellow Olympians seem pretty forgiving, but it seems the police might not be so understanding: a South Carolina sheriff claims he will charge Phelps with a misdemeanor for possession of marijuana if there's proof the crime occurred in his county.
