Police said the swimmers were confronted by security guards carrying guns after leaving a party at the French hospitality house.
RIO DE JANEIRO — Rio police said on Thursday that four U.S. Olympic swimmers who claimed they were robbed at gunpoint fabricated their story to cover up for a drunken night that ended with them vandalizing a gas station bathroom.
“It seems that they lied,” said Fernando Veloso, chief of Rio’s civil police. “No robbery was committed against these athletes. They were not victims of the crimes they claimed.”
Veloso’s statements at a jam-packed afternoon news conference followed a chaotic and confusing week for the U.S. team and cast a pall over the final days of the 2016 Summer Olympics. What started as a case of U.S. athletes falling victim to Rio’s notorious crime could end up leaving a black eye instead on the four American medalists.
Early Sunday morning, Ryan Lochte, Gunnar Bentz, Jack Conger and Jimmy Feigen were riding home from a party at France House — a restaurant/bar set up for the Olympics — when they said they were pulled over by men pretending to be police officers and were robbed. Lochte was the most explicit, saying one of the men put a gun to his forehead before taking their money.
Veloso gave a far different account. He said the four swimmers stopped at a gas station and one of them broke down the bathroom door and police found damage to a soap dispenser and a mirror.
The athletes were confronted by security officers, and they offered the gas station employees $20 and 100 Brazilian reais (about $33 U.S.). Veloso said the swimmers continued being belligerent, prompting a security officer to show his gun. But he said no excessive force was used and there was no way the swimmers could have interpreted the situation as a robbery.
There have been some pretty big fuck ups when we talk about celebrities (even half-ass fringe celebrities) doing stupid ass shit. Hugh Grant hiring a hooker that looked like Samuel L. Jackson on a good day. Pee Wee Herman treating his own Herman to a good time in a public theater, The list goes on and on. OJ, Aaron Hernandez, Rae Carruth, Evil Kanievel jumping over the canyon; all really fucking stupid things to do. Then we have a washed up reality show SWIMMER in the Olympics, which no one has even cared about since before Bruce Jenner stopped buying Goldbond powder.
Anyway, breaking this story down to the core is real simple.
- Shithead Swimmer goes out and gets hammered with 3 other grape smugglers.
2. On the way home they stop at gas station. The gas station won’t let them use the bathroom, so they piss all over the place. As swimmers tend to do.
3. Swimmers get in a fight with the attendant and break a door.
4. So the head idiot swimmer decides “Hey guys I have this covered, We just tell them we got robbed at gun point.
Even for a pancake brain like Lochte, making this allegation is completely moronic. How about the other 3 fucking idiots thinking “Yeah great idea Ryan nothing can go wrong with this plan”. This plan is equal to getting pulled over for a DUI and telling the cop “I wasn’t drinking, the booze drank me” (side note I’ve tried this it doesn’t work).
Here is how you explain Ryan Lochte.
Picture the United States as a giant High School. Ryan Lochte is stuffed in a locker, in the girls locker room. That’s it…end of comparison. We all know this guy is a fucking idiot. This shithead had a reality show on E! that was cancelled. You know how hard that is to do? For Christ sake that network will show basically anyone that will bang a black guy that plays a sport and that pansy wouldn’t even bother to blow Brittney Griner (USA WBBALL) to keep his show going. What a coward!
Okay here’s my favorite part of my blogs…They are the one liners that I love so much.
Things Lochtes buddies would have rather done that night then lie about being robbed
-Accompanied the North Korean losing athletes home to face Kim Jong Un
-Taken a dip in the Poop Ocean in RIO
-Tried to piece together all the severed limbs that wash up on RIOs beach
-Go to a gay club with some new friends they met from Syria
-Find Michael Phelps’ one other friend
-Try to help Bob Costas make those fudge cookies in his tree
-Help pay for all the abortions that will be needed just from the USA Basketball team
-Hang around with Brazils best known celebrity- The bubble bee guy on The Simpsons
-Climb up to the Jesus statue and find out its really The DUDE from “The Big Lebowski”
-Chill with the Horse Dancing guys because…they gotta know how to party, right?
Lochte is so stupid he can’t finish a Highlights magazine.
He is so stupid he has Velcro shoes that match his wallet.
He is so awful that his favorite sport is fucking swimming.
If Ryan Lochte was a cartoon character he would be fucking Millhouse from The Simpsons. Nobody needs him but if he is there no one notices anyway.
And so, just go away Ryan. Go crawl in a hole and leave productive humans alone. Or at least til you smoke some bath salts and eat someone’s face off like that kid in Florida. (Seriously did you see that shit? Way more entertaining then the Olympics.)
See you in 2020!
