Jimmy Feigen Pays Nearly $11k to Get Passport & Leave Rio

Jimmy Feigen has received his passport back and is clear to leave Rio after reaching a deal to make a donation of nearly $11,000.

The 26-year-old swimmer won a gold medal in Rio and now will be able to leave after getting caught up in controversy with teammates Ryan Lochte, Gunnar Bentz, and Jack Conger. After a late night of partying, the guys allegedly lied about being robbed at gunpoint and instead actually vandalized a gas station bathroom.

“After a long deliberation, this agreement was reached … he will donate 35,000 real [approximately $10,800] to an institute, and with that the case is resolved,” Feigen‘s lawyer Breno Melaragno said (via NBC News). “After this donation is done, his passport will be given back to him, and he will be free to return home.”

It was previously reported that authorities recommended that Jimmy, along with Ryan, be indicted for the alleged crime.
