American swimmer Ryan Lochte's wonderful account of being super tough is apparently not true!
Did you read American swimmer Ryan Lochte’s wonderful account of getting robbed at gunpoint with his three swimmer friends just days ago?
He said, in his toughest Clint Eastwood:
“We got pulled over, in the taxi, and these guys came out with a badge, a police badge, no lights, no nothing just a police badge and they pulled us over,” Lochte said. “They pulled out their guns, they told the other swimmers to get down on the ground — they got down on the ground. I refused, I was like we didn’t do anything wrong, so — I’m not getting down on the ground.
“And then the guy pulled out his gun, he cocked it, put it to my forehead and he said, “Get down,” and I put my hands up, I was like ‘whatever.’ He took our money, he took my wallet — he left my cell phone, he left my credentials.”
But then did you read how it was all basically fabricated? Multiple news sources have pointed to the swimmers and Lochte as being drunk, belligerent and destructive. They were dealt with then claimed they were robbed with Lochte claiming he was very tough and cool. “I was like ‘whatever.'”
The way best!
And we only have Brazil to thank for, first, theoretically robbing a tool and, second, having this incident of false bravado haunt him for the rest of his life.
“I was like ‘whatever!'”
The man will never work in this town again!
P.S. This has to do with surfing in the same way Shaun White has to do with surfing…. Brazil!
