Olympic Swimmer Ryan Lochte is in hot water after Rio police investigated the alleged robbery the swimmer told authorities that occurred in the city. Ryan Lochte and his teammates told the police that they were robbed after leaving a night club but according to Rio police it was just a cover up to hide the fact that the swimmers vandalized a gas station. According to the La Times:
The gas station owner told Rio de Janeiro’s O Globo newspaper that the swimmers vandalized his facility and urinated on it.
Lochte told NBC earlier this week that the swimmers stopped at a gas station and were robbed at gunpoint when they returned to their taxi.
On Wednesday night, Brazilian authorities pulled swimmers Gunnar Bentz and Jack Conger off their flight back to the United States. They were released after promising to cooperate with police. A third swimmer, James Feigen was also being sought by police and has agreed to be interviewed.
