Ryan Lochte ‘Apologizes’ For Rio Shenanigans

Olympic swimmer and all-around hot mess Ryan Lochte issued an apology (via his Instagram account) after Brazilian police accused a group of US swimmer of fabricating a story about being robbed at gunpoint. You can read that below.

While in Rio for the 2016 Summer Olympic games, Lochte and three other U.S. swimmers fabricated a story in which they claimed to have been robbed at gunpoint at a local gas station.

The U.S. Olympic Committee (who has since issued an apology for the swimmers’ behavior) confirmed that one of the swimmers had vandalized the gas station bathroom and gotten into an argument with staff.

In his apology, Lochte maintained that a stranger had pointed a gun at him at the gas station. According to the AP, Brazilian police said the swimmers were confronted by armed security guards after trashing the bathroom while intoxicated.

One swimmer, Jimmy Feigen, agreed to pay $11,000 to a Brazilian charity to avoid prosecution.
