It appears the claim of 4 US swimmers🏊 including Ryan Lochte that they were robbed at gun point🔫 at a gas station in Rio was a cooked up story. Brazilian police👮 claimed that the swimmers had defiled and vandalised the gas station⛽, forcing a security guard to pull a gun out and demand payment for the damage caused💵. The police version of the incident was later corroborated by a lawyer👔 who represented two of Lochte’s fellow US swimmers who were detained by the authorities. US Olympic Committee (USOC) also apologised🙏 for the athletes' behaviour and issued a statement📜 - "They stopped at a gas station to use the restroom, where one of the athletes committed an act of vandalism. An argument ensued between the athletes and two armed gas station security staff, who displayed their weapons, demanded the athletes provide a monetary payment. Once the security officials received money from the athletes, the athletes were allowed to leave.😳"
