Ryan Lochte's Lawyer Defends His Robbery Story After Police Claim 'No Evidence'
The 32-year-old Olympian’s lawyer Jeff Ostrow defended him in a statement.
“This happened the way he described it,” Jeff said, adding that Ryan signed a statement this week confirming his story. “Ryan was a hundred percent cooperative and fully available when they reached out to us for an interview. It doesn’t behoove Ryan and anyone else to make up a story.”
Police say that while fake police stops, like the one Ryan described, do happen, they are not common in that area and usually happen in poorer cities.
