Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte fabricated a story of being robbed at gunpoint during the Games. One police official, who spoke to the AP under the condition of anonymity, said that Lochte, as well as the other swimmers on the U.S. Olympic team — Jack Conger, Gunnar Bentz, and Jimmy Feigen — were at a Rio gas station the same night that they claimed to have been mugged.
According to the official, one of the swimmers tried and failed to open an outside bathroom door. They then pushed on and broke the door, prompting a guard to confront them. The store manager asked the athletes to pay for the broken door, which they did, and then left.
