Ryan Lochte Fabricated Rio Robbery Story, Officials Claim

Brazilian police believe that Ryan Lochte fabricated the story about getting robbed at gunpoint last weekend in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

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.

This story is still developing…

    So if they damaged property why weren’t the police called by the “security” & why were they all sitting on the floor or told to give money for the damages? If I were in a foreign country & was held by force somewhere & told to fork up money to security guards Id feel robbed too.
    Far as Im concerned the video is way too far away to be sure.

    What a surprise, a dumb guy like him lied to cops. And he’s 32, that’s sad. Grow up and act like an adult with good character piece of shit.

    It got them ahead of the narrative, so long as they broke the ‘story’ first they could call the situation what they wanted, get sympathy and then when it came out it was BS, people would instantly question the police, call Brazil a c ‘cesspool’ (that was used so often in the comments I wanted to scream) and they’d stay the belligered victims. Of course they can now never admit that they lied because it’s gotten too big – sponsors, brands, the public would turn on them, not to mention Brazilian authorities would want their pound of flesh I don’t doubt. Also, I suspect RL didn’t exactly hate all the attention. Without MP Lochte would be the hero
    of the hour, but he’s completely in MP’s shadow. this got him in the
    light.
