When Maryland Transportation Authority police charged Olympian Michael Phelps with driving under the influence last week, they had two choices about what to do next: They could release him to a friend or family member, or take him to jail. 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.

Editor: Thank you for the story about the sign outside the state police barracks in Bel Air.  It brings back wonderful memories.  One week after moving from Delaware to Maryland, I walked into the barracks and asked why their old sign didn't include the number of alcohol-related fatalities. It was political.  People complained about the dummies, "You mean if I get killed, then I am a dummy?" In my personal fight against drunk driving, I didn't like the word "accidents.

Just think of the place a mugger would hate and stick a cash machine there.Like, say, a police station.Yesterday, Anne Arundel became the first county in the state to have ATMs in police station lobbies. The machines, run by the Anne Arundel County Employees Federal Credit Union, are open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.Capt. Michael P. Fitzgibbons, the man who came up with the idea, called it a "no-brainer." His boss, Chief Robert A. Beck, labeled it "fantastic."

Automated teller machine robberies are to banking what plane crashes are to transportation: High-profile, much feared -- and extremely rare.The American Bankers Association reports one ATM crime for every 3.5 million transactions, higher than the odds of being struck by lightning in a year (one in 2 million). A more independent source, the Baltimore County police, has recorded 12 ATM robberies this year, 1 percent of all county robberies. Of course, when someone is held-up at a machine near your home, you don't forget.

But they just don't know the identity of the woman he killed. Small, 45, walked early Sunday into the Police Department's Central District — adjacent to headquarters, on East Baltimore Street — where, sweating and nervous, he asked to speak with an officer in private, police wrote in court records. When Officer Emiljana Kodra asked him what the problem was, he allegedly wrote on a piece of paper: "I think I killed someone.
