Ryan Lochte Fabricated Rio Robbery Story, Officials Claim
According to AP, the 32-year-old swimmer and his teammates – Jack Conger, Gunnar Bentz, and Jimmy Feigen – actually stopped by a gas station at around 6 a.m. and broke the bathroom door to get it open.
A security guard then confronted them about it with the store’s manager, and made them pay for the damage.
The guard was allegedly armed with a pistol, but “never took it out or pointed it at the swimmers.”
Jack and Gunnar, who who were pulled off their plane while heading back to the United States, reportedly told police that the robbery story was made up.
