American swimmer Ryan Lochte robbed at gunpoint! Forced to pay the public back for bad TV!
American swimmer Ryan Lochte is a bummer that comes around once every four years.
After London people thought his cray cray handsome cray was too hot to handle and so he got his own television show What Would Ryan Lochte Do? that might have been the worst thing to ever appear on the small screen. Let’s watch highlights!
Thankfully it failed quickly.
But there was no other punishment for him and he got to continue living without fear, without consequence.
Until he went to Brazil! Last night after his final swim event he was held up at gunpoint by robbers. Let’s read about it in The New York Times!
Four American swimmers, including the six-time gold medalist Ryan Lochte, were held up at gunpoint early Sunday morning, according to the United States Olympic Committee.
The other United States swimmers robbed, according to a statement from the committee, were Gunnar Bentz, Jack Conger and Jimmy Feigen.
“Their taxi was stopped by individuals posing as armed police officers who demanded the athletes’ money and other personal belongings,” a spokesman for the United States Olympic Committee said.
“All four athletes are safe and cooperating with authorities.”
Lochte told NBC News that one of the men put a cocked gun to his head.
“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.”
“I was like whatever”…I suppose he is still living without fear. Too cool! Too sexy and I take it all back! Please gimme What Would Ryan Lochte Do II: The “Do You Feel Lucky Punk?” Years!
