Nick Diaz ‘disappointed’ in Olympian Michael Phelps?

Perhaps Nick Diaz is using sarcasm to send the message that we are all human and we all make mistakes or perhaps he is really disappointed in the most decorated Olympian of all time following his second DUI arrest.  Either way, Nick Diaz posted ‘disappointment’ on Twitter and it is getting a lot of attention.

Michael Phelps, the four-time Olympian, 29, was arrested last Tuesday about 1:40 a.m. and later released, police said. According to media reports, police said his blood-alcohol content was .14.

In 2004, he was arrested on charges of driving under the influence in Salisbury, Maryland. He pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 18 months probation.

The Stockton, California native Diaz went to Twitter to make light of the situation. phelps

Diaz, no stranger to trouble with the law, was arrested in California on Sep. 6, on charges of suspicion of DUI, obstructing a police officer, destruction of evidence and driving with a suspended license.

Before that, Diaz was arrested on December 12th of last year and charged with DUI. He missed multiple court dates before finally surrendering on August 21 and making a $25,000 bail for his release.

Diaz (26-9, 1 NC) is scheduled to fight former UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva on January 31, 2015 in the main event of UFC 183.
