Ryan Lochte Gets Attacked By Audience Member During 'DWTS' - Watch Now

Ryan Lochte just finished his first performance on the season premiere of Dancing with the Stars and proceeded to have a scary encounter with an audience member!

While being critiqued by Carrie Ann Inaba, someone rushed the stage and attempted to attack Ryan. The man was a part of a group of men who were booing and ripped open their shirts to reveal the round symbol for “No Lochte” on their chests, according to TMZ.

The camera remained on Carrie Ann, who repeatedly told the attacker to back off while he was tackled by security. The show went straight to a commercial but when they returned Ryan opened up about the experience.

“So many feelings going through my head right now. A little hurt,” he explained.

Check out what happened below…

    so uncalled for – he and Cheryl didnt deserve that. Now I doubt Ryan will stay with the show after this. Now he definitely feels like he let his partner down. He made a mistake but doesnt deserve to be badly hurt over a ripped up poster

  • Khloe Mason

    I agree with your comments. Why does he have to leave the show now?

  • Khloe Mason

    I see no reason to continue to bash this guy. Honestly I think I would have been scared witless under similar conditions if I had been in Rio where law and order is non existent and a gun was pointed at me. Those gringos still managed to extort $11,000 out of them in the end. I am sick of this litany of ridicule on Lochte. I hope this incident garners public sympathy for him in the long run.

    It really is not that serious. Besides Rio was a joke before Ryan even got there I think they are trying to find someone to scapegoat because they know they wont ever see another olympics. Why are we assaulting eachother over a poster?!?! You are spot on.

    Hopefully Ryan has learned a lesson. He’s is on Dancing with The Stars to be judged on his dancing skills, which really wasn’t bad. Thought he did a pretty good job. Give him a chance to redeem himself. I felt sorry for him but more so that him mother had to sit through that. He will have to be strong to continue on Dancing or anywhere now .Not saying what he did was right at all But All of us have done things we aren’t proud of, (If I was him I wouldn’t want another drink) At 75 I can’t say I am perfect as many of us aren’t.
    Maybe he will take some time after Dancing teaching under privileged kids swimming lessons. Let’s give him a chance, we got enough problems in this world.

  • The Truth Hurts

    Wow, they need to fire the director of the show. The whole reason he’s there is bring up press and the morons didn’t show the incident which would have been on every news channel in the world giving them ratings which is what they crave for. That being said Ryan Locate is a moron and still hasn’t learn his lesson but I don’t think he should be attacked over it. In the end he hurt him self more then anyone else. He didn’t kill anybody

    Some people act like he killed or raped someone… get over it and move on. I hate it when people act like Brazil did nothing wrong, both sides (Ryan and Brazil) were full of shit.

  • Shelby

    Two men in their 40′s with nothing better to do. Pathetic. Too many people think way too much about what others think and do and not enough about themselves.

  • Star

    So staged. I feel sorry for his fans.

  • Gina

    Not a fan of Lochte, but that was uncalled for.
