Ryan Lochte, Jimmy Feigen, Gunnar Bentz and Jack Conger’s celebratory night out in Rio continues to get weirder. First the group said they were mugged in a taxi. Then the story changed to include a stop at a gas station restroom. Now authorities have focused on the gas station restroom and there is apparently security footage that shows one of the swimmers “breaking down” a door and “fighting” with a security guard.
Even if this is exactly what happened, it is still unapparent why they would have made up a story about getting mugged.
While this story continues to develop, Lochte is safe at home while his teammates remain in Brazil. Jimmy Feigen, who didn’t show up for his flight on Wednesday, told USA TODAY that he is safe in Rio and cooperating with authorities.
