Before being pulled over recently, Michael Phelps went on a bit of a Binge…
Michael Phelps had just finished up an 8-hour gambling session at a Baltimore casino before he was popped for DUI early Tuesday morning … TMZ Sports has learned.
According to our casino sources, Phelps hit up the Horseshoe Casino around 5pm Monday afternoon … and sat in a private VIP gambling room for hours … finally leaving around 1am.
We’re told Phelps was playing blackjack … though it’s unclear if he also played other card games that night. There have been several reports that he’s big into poker.
Clearly, Phelps had been drinking inside the casino … we’re told his booze of choice was beer … and when he was pulled over around 1:40am, it was just a few miles from the casino.
We’re told Phelps is a regular at the casino … in fact, he was just there last month playing poker.
We reached out to Phelps for comment — so far, no dice.
