WIS is reporting that Columbia law enforcement has made eight arrests stemming from the Michael Phelps bong photo. The charges involve drug posession and distribution as the result of a raid, likely on the house where Phelps was photographed partying.

The best part: the police now have the famous bong. It appears someone was trying to sell it on eBay for $100,000. Nasty ol’ bong? No, thank you. But a grilled cheese sandwhich in the shape of Phelps’ eye goggles? We’ll see if we can take out a loan.
