Members of the U.S. Swim team were caught in a bit of international drama after claiming that they were robbed at gunpoint after a night out in Rio.
However, Rio authorities denied the version of events offered by Ryan Lochte and the other swimmers. The police said that the swimmers vandalized a gas station’s bathroom after a night of partying. They said that security guards at the gas station pulled guns of the group because of Lochte’s erratic behavior and demanded money to cover the cost of the vandalism.
Jimmy Feigen and Ryan Lochte were indicted for falsely reporting a crime. Feigen made a charitable donation of $11,000 in order to leave Brazil yesterday.
The other two swimmers were allowed to leave Brazil after giving statements to authorities about the alleged robbery.
Lochte issued an apology on social media today. Many are calling his apology a NON-apology.
