Olympic Swimmer Michael Phelps To ‘Attend a Program’ After DUI Arrest

Olympic Swimmer Michael Phelps To ‘Attend a Program’ After DUI Arrest

Chris Hyde/Getty Images(BALTIMORE) -- Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps will take time away from swimming "to attend a program that will provide the help I need to better understand myself" following his DUI arrest in Maryland, he tweeted Sunday.Phelps, 29, was arrested last week after police said they pulled him over for driving 84 miles per hour in a 45 mph zone.A string of tweets from Phelps began with him saying that "The past few days have been extremely difficult."

 

I recognize that this is not my first lapse in judgment, and I am extremely disappointed with myself.

— Michael Phelps (@MichaelPhelps) October 5, 2014

 

 

I’m going to take some time away to attend a program that will provide the help I need to better understand myself.

— Michael Phelps (@MichaelPhelps) October 5, 2014

 

"Swimming is a major part of my life, but right now I need to focus my attention on me as an individual," he continued, "and do the necessary work to learn from this experience and make better decisions in the future."

After police pulled him over, he registered a .14 percent on a Breathalyzer test, according to police documents obtained by ESPN.The legal limit in Maryland is .08.

"Mr. Phelps was identified as the driver by his driver’s license and appeared to be under the influence. He was unable to perform satisfactorily a series of standard field sobriety tests," a spokesperson for Maryland Transportation Authority said.

Asked to do a one-leg stand, the Maryland Transportation Authority said that Phelps "stated 'that's not happening.'"

In arrest documents, an officer wrote that after he placed Phelps in custody, the swimmer appeared "disoriented, argumentative."

He was charged with driving under the influence, excessive speed and crossing double lane lines.Phelps was also arrested in 2004 in Maryland. He pleaded guilty to that arrest and got 18 months probation and a $250 fine.

His 2004 conviction was waived. If convicted on current charges, Phelps will face the penalties of a first-time offender, which include up to one year in jail, a $1,000 fine, and the loss of his driver's license for six months.

Phelps is due incourt on November 19.

Michael B. Jordan Shares Details of the New “Fantastic Four”

ABC/Rick Rowell(NEW YORK) -- The Fantastic Four isn't hitting theaters until August 2015, but with most of the filming complete, every Marvel fan is clamoring to get a sneak peek at what's to come from the reboot starring Kate Mara, Miles Teller, Jamie Bell and Michael B. Jordan.Jordan, 27, who plays the Human Torch in the film, caught up with ABC News and talked about the highly-anticipated flick, revealing what he could."I'm really excited about it, everyone is really happy," he said of filming. "We worked hard for three months, put a lot of time into it. The script is very grounded and relatable to everybody, as much as you can. You really get a chance to grow with these characters. It's an origin story. You get to discover these abilities. These disabilities rather and grow with them."As for the new suits, he said, "It's a new look. We are all in containment suits. ... It's gritty. It's a gritty film.""The costume process definitely took some time to get in and out of that thing, especially since I was bulking up," he said. "It was a little more snug during filming. We got through it man. It was a process, but we did it. It was hard work," he added.Jordan also said he's not aware of any possible Avengers/Fantastic Four cross-over -- or even the chance of a teaser clip of The Fantastic Four post-credit of The Avengers: Age of Ultron, which hits theaters a few months prior in May 2015."I have no clue, I have no idea about any of that," he said. "From a personal standpoint, it would always be cool to collaborate with other talented actors in that franchise. But I just have no clue whatsoever what Marvel has up their sleeve."Jordan spoke to ABC after hosting Canon's PIXMA PRO City Senses Gallery in Austin on Oct. 2. The actor got to follow in his mother's footsteps and take pictures for the gallery opening."My mom is big into photography, she's an artist, she paints and always took a lot of photos and pictures of us a kid growing up," he said "Being able to host this gallery in Austin is awesome. My mom was really excited for my pictures because she feels a little responsible for giving me that camera eye. She was happy to see the photos, she said I did a really good job. And of course, she critiqued me on the pics."The theme of Jordan's gallery was music."It just kind of hit me to shoot a guitar, I used to play guitar as a kid," he added. "The idea of a lot of small pieces going into this bigger puzzle. There's so many pieces of a guitar that are crucial to the final product."

Charlie Sheen Sued for Sexual Battery after Dentist Visit

Charlie Sheen Sued for Sexual Battery after Dentist Visit

Paul Drinkwater/NBC/NBCU Photo Bank via Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- A dental technician is suing actor Charlie Sheen after a September medical appointment allegedly went awry. Margarita Palestino says Sheen grabbed her inappropriately and punched her in the chest while making threats during a Sept. 25 appointment. According to court documents, the actor arrived at the Los Angeles office accompanied by a body guard and personal assistant and started "yelling incoherently" at Palestino and the dental staff. While being attended to by the technician and dentists George Bogen and Jaime Azdair, Sheen allegedly ripped off a nitrous oxide mask placed on his face and jumped out of the chair, causing dental instruments to fall on the floor. He then yelled that he was going to kill the staff, after which Bogen attempted to calm him down, the lawsuit said. When Palestino leaned over the place the mask on Sheen's face a second time, he allegedly grabbed her breast and pulled her scrubs, trying to open or remove her bra, she said. Azdair added that Sheen lunged at him with a knife but could not reach him and instead stabbed the chair in the examination room. Spit covered the walls of the room and items that "were broken or in disarray" lay scattered throughout the area, according to court documents.Before Sheen left the dental office, his personal assistant approached Palestino and handed her $500 "for your troubles," she said. Bogen alleged the actor was "high" on a combination of crack cocaine, Theradol, and alcohol. “Our client is the victim of heinous acts perpetuated by Charlie Sheen,” said Neama Rahmani of West Coast Trial Lawyers, the law firm representing Palestino. “She will not be intimidated by Sheen or those who are attempting to cover up for him. We look forward to exposing the truth and vindicating her rights in court.”

Tony Bennett Talks Lady Gaga, Arts in Schools, Secret to His Success

Tony Bennett Talks Lady Gaga, Arts in Schools, Secret to His Success

Photo by Larry Busacca/Getty Images for Exploring The Arts(NEW YORK) -- Tony Bennett, who made history this week by becoming the oldest artist with a No. 1 album, said he has a secret to his success.One, he said, most may not believe.“I never worked a day in my life because I love what I do,” he told ABC News. “I sing and I paint. And I do that every day. I keep studying. I keep learning. And I just love the fact that I’m getting away with it because it’s what I love to do.”Bennett, 88, topped the Billboard 200 this week for his jazz duets collaboration with Lady Gaga titled Cheek to Cheek. The album has reportedly sold more than 131,000 copies since its release last week.Bennett called Lady Gaga, who is 60 years younger, elegant and talented.“I don’t think about her age because she’s brilliant. She’s a very accomplished piano player. She’s a great improviser,” he said. “Anything she takes on is going to work.”Bennett said he didn’t back down when others criticized him for not performing more “modern stuff” or called his music “light entertainment.”“I’m convinced that 35 or 50 years from now, [music by Cole Porter, George Gershwin and others will] finally be called America’s classical music,” he said. “I don’t consider them old songs, I consider them masterpieces.”Off stage, Bennett and his wife’s foundation Exploring the Arts raised $1.3 million during their eighth annual benefit gala for arts programs in New York schools. Bennett said he hoped to expand the programs to San Francisco and elsewhere in the US.“The whole dream is have more artists than any other country in the world,” he said. “Every public school in the United States should have an art program because artists, the whole premise of artists, is the search for truth and beauty. … That’s our dream.”For now, Bennett — who started singing while waiting tables as a teenager to help his single mother — said he was enjoying the success of his album with Lady Gaga.“I’m thrilled about that because I’ve always wanted to be one of a kind somehow,” he said “And it happened.”

Why Cristin Milioti Sobbed When She Learned Her Character’s Fate in “HIMYM”

Why Cristin Milioti Sobbed When She Learned Her Character’s Fate in “HIMYM”

ABC/Rick Rowell(NEW YORK) --  While doing an interview about her new show A to Z, Cristin Milioti, aka the mom from How I Met Your Mother, dished on how she reacted when she found out her character's fate.Milioti had a very visceral reaction when she found out her character was going to die, so much so that she started crying."I just burst into tears as soon as they told me," she told Vulture. "I had to write an e-mail later that night to [co-creator] Craig [Thomas] being like, 'Hey, I'm really sorry I cried all over you at the Christmas party.' The way that he and Josh [Radnor, the actor who played Ted] explained it to me was, 'Well, Ted has two loves, and basically what we're trying to say is that life comes at you in ways you can never expect.' Once they put it that way, I understood it more. I was like, that's really involved and awesome."But at first, Milioti really was heartbroken that this woman Ted had spent 10 years trying to find was going to now die!"At first I was like, 'But wait, no, he finally found her.' I had just caught up on all the seasons, so I said, 'But this dude's been looking for the mother of his kids forever,'" she added. "They were like, 'No, they had a wonderful marriage together and they had these two beautiful children and it's still super sad, but we want it to be lifelike.'"She continued, "And that's how this show's always been. Marshall lost his dad. Robin finding out she can't have kids. They explained it was their plan from the beginning, and then I was along for it, along for the ride."If you don't know HIMYM, the main character Ted spends a decade looking for "the one" and Milioti ends up being that woman and the mother of his children. In the finale this past March, the wife dies after falling sick during a flash forward into Ted's future to end the show.Fans were not happy about this ending and spoke up. One even sent the actress an alternate ending where Milioti's character lives."I was super touched, I'm not gonna lie. Because first of all, someone cares about this show so much, they took time out of their day. And that he felt the need to save this character," she continued. "That was hugely flattering. But on the same hand, I'm also sort of behind Craig and Carter [Bays, the show's other creator] on this one, because it was so brave of them to say, 'This is how we've always envisioned it, for nine years, whether the show ended after one season or whether it ended after 20, this is always going to be it.'"As for her new show, A to Z, the actress said she picked this project because, "I loved everyone involved. You got Ben Queen, he's amazing. Rashida Jones. Michael Patrick Jann is our resident director, executive producer. He did Reno 911. And then as the cast came together, it got even more awesome.""It's interesting because I feel like so much of our show has to do with dating and this day and age and the Internet and Twitter and Facebook and all this stuff. But I actually think that even though it's all within that universe, of how easily you can track someone or how easily you can Google someone, I actually think it is about how none of that matters, that you are meant to meet the person you are meant to meet," she added.

“The Notebook” Author Nicholas Sparks Accused of Bigotry

Vera Anderson/WireImage(NEW YORK) -- Nicholas Sparks, the author who penned The Notebook and A Walk to Remember, is being sued by a former CEO of his North Carolina private school for allegedly holding the man captive in a room while assaulting and threatening him.According to court papers, Sparks called CEO Saul Hillel Benjamin to a conference room at the Epiphany School of Global Studies in November 2013 to fire him.The suit claim “Sparks and others physically intimidated, threatened and assaulted Mr. Benjamin while keeping him trapped in a room for hours without even access to a bathroom,” bringing Benjamin to tears.Sparks, according to court documents, told Benjamin he brought “disrepute to Epiphany” for mingling with African-Americans at a public event, and explained the school's lack of diversity was because “black students are too poor and can’t do the academic work.”The suit further claims that when Benjamin tried to inject diversity into the school, Sparks “ridiculed” his efforts -- and condoned bullying of several homosexual students while referring to them as the “gay club.”The lawsuit also alleges that Sparks and members of the school’s board repeatedly showed contempt for Benjamin’s Jewish heritage and forced him to recite his religious beliefs before the entire student body and parents who dished out insults.Sparks’ entertainment attorney, Scott Schwimer, said in a statement to the New York Post: “As a gay, Jewish man who has represented Nick for almost 20 years I find these allegations completely ludicrous and offensive."Theresa Sprain, an attorney handling the matter for Sparks, also told the newspaper, “We deny these allegations as presented in the complaint. We will vigorously defend this matter and look forward to pursuing any available remedies.”

Who Earns the Biggest Salaries in Hollywood?

Paul Drinkwater/NBC(LOS ANGELES) -- Who earns the biggest salaries in Hollywood?  The Hollywood Reporter has crunched the numbers for a new story on how much folks in the entertainment industry make, from A-list actors to wigmakers.You may be familiar with some of the stats -- for example, Robert Downey Jr. earned $75 million between June 2013 and June 2014, thanks to his appearance in Marvel films. You may also know -- or may have guessed -- that Dwayne Johnson, Leonardo DiCaprio, Liam Neeson, Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence are among the actors who also made tens of millions of dollars during that time.However, did you know that animal actors can make six figures for their work? For example, Crystal the monkey, which starred in The Hangover Part II, collected $108,000 in 2012 for its role in the short-lived NBC series Animal Practice.On the low end of the spectrum, extras make about $150 per day, while some reality show contestants earn only a small stipend for their 15 minutes of fame.You can read The Hollywood Reporter's comprehensive analysis on its website or in the Oct. 10 issue of the publication.

Movie Review: “Annabelle” (Rated R)

Movie Review: “Annabelle” (Rated R)

Warner Bros. (New Line)(NEW YORK) -- When your relatively low-budget horror film grosses $318 million in worldwide box office receipts, you better believe there’s going to be a sequel -- or in the case of 2013’s The Conjuring, a prequel. Annabelle is the origin story of the creepy-looking, possessed doll that terrified audiences in The Conjuring. It’s the 1960s, and John and Mia (Ward Horton and Annabelle Wallis) are newlyweds.  Mia is very pregnant and John is in his last year of medical school.  Guess what Mia likes to collect?  If you answered “dolls,” you win two vials of holy water and one routine exorcism. John presents Mia with a large white box, inside which is a large, creepy-looking doll that Mia really wanted for her collection.  Guess what Mia names it?  Right again. Mia loves Annabelle.  That is, until a cult member breaks into John and Mia’s house and commits suicide in the unborn baby’s nursery, staining Annabelle with blood.  After that, Mia’s not quite as in love with Annabelle as she once was, especially when weird things start happening in the house: the sewing machine turns on by itself, the house starts making strange noises, and something ignites all the burners on the stove and starts a fire.  It’s enough to induce labor, which it does, and a near tragedy turns into a little miracle named Leah. Mia and John take baby Leah and move to an apartment in Pasadena, but all the crazy stuff that happened in their house follows them there.  That’s when Annabelle starts to make grown men jump, flail their arms and smack you in the shoulder. At least, that’s what happened to me when the guy sitting next to me nearly went airborne out of his seat.  And that was just when they dimmed the theater lights. As scary as so many people thought The Conjuring was, I never felt the slightest bit freaked out. Annabelle, on the other hand, with its creepy pacing, rendering of demons, sudden audio stabs and frightening visuals – including the doll itself – occasionally sent shivers down my skeptical spine.  What this movie does so effectively is put baby Leah in danger. The demon is after the baby’s soul, and the film is presented in such a way to make you feel the demon may very well get exactly what it wants. Three-and-a-half out of five stars.
