    Maybe Barry in the white house sent them. He is real good at wrecking relations with other countries.

  • It's looking like they might have filed a false police report or at the very least lied to Rio Police. Seems the police have charged with filing a false report and have passed it the local DA. How is the Rio DA going to prove they didn't get robbed between the gas station and the Olympic village? They'll have to get the two swimmers left in Rio to confess.

    Why do i get the feeling that Brazil is going to come out looking bad here.

    • they already confessed

    • You're right the swimmers that didn't get out did confess. It could be argued they said whatever to be able to leave the country.

      I get the feeling Brazil will go overboard trying to prosecute Locate and the other swimmers they're gonna' come out looking really bad. I seriously doubt Lochte is getting extradited for this. Brazil is better off making them pay for damages, pay a hefty fine and maybe give them a lifetime ban from the Country.

    • brazil won't do anything we are pretty chill we just will spread the truth

  • I think you are presupposing the answer to that question when you insert "lie" in it. It very well could have happened.
    Brazil is a crime ridden hell hole, and there have been enough other brazen robberies in broad daylight during the Olympics that I don't doubt this COULD have happened.

  • I read today that the swimmers trashed a gas station bathroom and the security pulled out a gun on them because they didn't want to pay for the damages. I Don't know how true this is but there is an investigation rn.

    • there are videos so yeah they are lying

    • I think 2 swimmers were taken in for questioning, so the truth will come out. If you say there are videos well...

    • they all admitted it was a lie but the deserve to be punished, 2 crimes in 2 days

  • Lmao the shit that goes down in the Olympic center wouldn't surprise me. Its like a college campus I guess oh plus the millions of free condoms! Lmao best time to hookup with foreigners 😂

    • @FallOutBoy2001 lmao when you spend hours upon hours with someone of the opposite sex shit happens.

      Plus athletes like them they think they can do anything. Look it how he was an alcoholic after he won before. Look at other pro athletes. You just know they got some chick in every away town lol.

    • He was probably an alcoholic before, just saying

  • Well if it did not happen that is good. That said as far as I know it has not been proven either way and police has confiscated the swimmers passports and detained them in the country to be questioned.

    Personally I am inclined to believe them for now and suspect the Brazilian government to try a coverup since the victims are high profile athletes.

  • If its proven that they wasted police time, then they deserve to get time. With all the shit that is going on in Brazil right now, the last thing the police need is people taking up their valuable time.

    But innocent until proven guilty. So I will wait to see if they are charged.

    • Everyone lies my friend, including you. In fact human beings lie about 100 times a day, many of them little white lies. Besides, let's not pretend there is no corruption or crime in Brazil, Hello... who is in the process of being impeached? Nothing official has come out as to whether the story is true or not on Lochte and his crew yet other than accusations from both sides, are flying back and forth. If he did lie, he did, but American's are no more or less liars than any place else in the world.

  • They're an embarrassment to the country and fucking ridiculous. They go to another country as a representative and a guest, destroy private property, then make a big scandal. That's something I'd expect out of teenagers. I hope they get some kind of punishment for it and not a slap on the wrist. They think they're above the law and everyone else. They deserve to get knocked down a peg.

  • I definitely agree that it seems and sounds sketchy. But I'll wait til the police conclude all of rhe interviews, etc, before I ASSume that anyone is lying.

    I just can't come up with what their motive would be for making up this story to befind with.

    So... I'll just wait before I jump to conclusions.

    • Look... if they made all of this up, then they deserve whatever personal embarrassment and legal penalties they get.

      But to say something like you just did, generalizing all Americans, is a bigoted and unfair statement.

      Aside from that, I defer to my initial comment. ✌

    • they just admitted

  • I'm honestly ashamed of him, if he truly did make a bold-faced lie. He's supposed to representing our country, not making a bad name for us. At least Phelps has his shit together

  • I still don't understand why they did that. They should tell the truth.
    Don't get me wrong, I know you're Brazilian, but I think they made this story up because they heard that Brazil is a country where it's easy to be robbed.
    It was a stupid thing to do.
