Judge Orders Ryan Lochte's Passport Seized Amid Robbery Story Controversy

Judge Orders Ryan Lochte's Passport Seized Amid Robbery Story Controversy

A judge has ordered that Ryan Lochte and James Feigen turn over their passports to Brazil amid reports that there is no evidence they were held up at gunpoint during the 2016 Rio Summer Olympics.

“Judge Keyla Blanc De Cnop, the Special Court of the Fan and Major Events, ordered the dispatch of search warrants and seizure of passports of American swimmers Ryan Lochte and James Feigen,” the judge’s office told People in a statement.

Ryan and James were ordered not to leave Brazil, but the problem is, Ryan is already back in the States. Police were dispatched to the swim team’s now-vacant apartments in the Olympic village as well.

“The entire swim team had moved out already, so they couldn’t take the passports,” a source added. “They don’t believe his version of events, so there will be an inquiry. “This was the most high profile incident that has happened here in Brazil, so the government is really taking it seriously. The USOC is cooperating fully, of course, but they want to talk to Ryan. They’re not happy at all that this has given Rio a black eye, and they are vowing to get to the bottom of it. It’s a mess right now.”
