The already-confusing story about the alleged robbery of four U.S. Olympic swimmers has gotten stranger, and bigger, with a Brazilian judge ordering two of them, including Ryan Lochte, to surrender their passports and to not leave the country. One problem: Lochte’s already back home.
If you need to catch up: Lochte and three teammates said they were pulled over in a taxi on their way back from a party early Sunday morning, and robbed at gunpoint by a man (or men—important distinction!) pretending to be police. Lochte said they didn’t initially inform police or the USOC because they were afraid of getting into trouble, but eventually told their stories. Yesterday, a Rio police source cast doubt on what Lochte had told them.
