Last night, two U.S.' Olympic swimmers, Jack Conger and Gunnar Bentz, were pulled off a flight by Rio Police as part of an investigation regarding their claims that they were robbed at gunpoint by a group of men posing as cops.
Authorities also attempted to seize the passports of Ryan Lochte and Jimmy Feigen, but Lochte had already scrambled back to the States and Feigen was no where to be found. Feigen was reportedly supposed to be on the flight with Conger and Bentz but he never showed up.
As more details from the night in question surface it has become quite clear that the story that Lochte told authorities was a complete lie. Although, that should have been obvious when Lochte told police he said, "Whatever" when he had a gun pointed at his forehead.
According to ABC, there is video evidence that the swimmers got into a brawl with a security guard at a gas station, which is a totally different story than Lochte and Feigen told police. Not to mention, surveillance video shows the four men entering the Olympic Village after the alleged robbery holding some of the items they said were stolen.
#LochteGate is sweeping the nation, many are speculating that the four dummies were robbed by prostitutes, and the comedians on twitter are eating it up like a pack of vultures on a Jeah-tah carcass.
