American swimmer, Ryan Lochte claimed just a few days ago that he was robbed at gunpoint at the ongoing Rio Olympic games. Lochte’s claim that he was robbed at gunpoint by men pretending to be Police officers has now been thrown into doubt.
Authorities have released surveillance footage from where Lochte claims to have been robbed while returning from a club alongside his teammates Gunnar Bentz, Jack Conger and Jimmy Feigen.
A Brazilian Judge Keyla Blank, who earlier ordered Lochte and Feigen to not leave Brazil ruled today that there was insufficient evidence to prove Lochte’s claims.
She also pointed out that despite the fact that the athletes claimed to be at a club about 40 minutes away, it took them three hours to return to the Olympic village.
Although Lochte has returned to the United states, Feigen, Conger and Bentz have been detained in Brazil until they prove their allegations to investigators.
