More Ryan Lochte updates. Per a Brazilian police official, two security guards pointed guns at the US Olympic swimmers during the gas station confrontation.

A “source directly connected to Ryan Lochte” told TMZ that the swimmers were pulled from the cab at gunpoint and that had been edited out of the security footage released.

It’s at least plausible a heavily intoxicated person mistook an armed security guard for police, did not quite understand the nature of the encounter given the language barrier, and was a bit hazy about the details (or embellished them a bit) afterward.
