The Rio police chief claimed that Lochte and his teammates vandalized a bathroom, smashing mirrors and breaking soap dispensers.

But the fact is, the only thing damaged was a “loosely attached” sandwich sign that the gas station gets for free.

And that’s not the only thing the Rio police lied about.

Meanwhile, eyewitnesses confirm Lochte’s story that they were robbed at gunpoint.

Lochte’s embellishments were immaterial–he claimed the gun was put to his forehead, when really it was pointed at him from 5 feet away. Still armed robbery.

Lochte was robbed, and the Rio police claimed he wasn’t.

Lochte lost sponsorships and became a laughing stock over nothing.
