In Phelps' case, they chose the first option. After the swimmer flunked roadside sobriety tests, according to court documents, officers took him back to a police station. After he took a Breathalyzer test that registered a 0.14 percent blood alcohol level, Phelps signed some paperwork and was released to a "responsible adult," police have said.

The Baltimore Police Department must pay $180,000 to a pharmacy technician who was wrongfully snagged in a 2005 drug bust outside Lexington Market, the Maryland Court of Appeals has ruled. The unanimous decision Friday upended years of precedent and potentially could make it easier for citizens to sue police officers who make arrests they know to be illegal. The judges unanimously upheld a Baltimore Circuit Court jury's decision against Officer Arnold E. Houghton, who five years ago ordered the arrest of Cheryl Forrest even though other officers protested that she was innocent.
