Ryan Lochte may be done with the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro but Brazil isn’t done with him. The swimmer is in the middle of a huge scandal after claiming he and his teammates were robbed during a night out. However, Rio civil police said the allegations were not true, according to CNN.
Lochte is no stranger when it comes to legal authorities and scandal. Below are five times his bad boy behavior got him unwanted attention.
1. Rio Robbery
Lochte claimed that he and fellow Team USA swimmers — James Feigen, Jack Conger and Gunnar Bentz — were held at gun point and robbed in Rio during the 2016 Olympic Games. However, teammates Bentz and Conger late denied being victims and said that Lochte lied about the robbery.
Rio police have reported that the men vandalized a gas station, both sides agree that during the mishap, money was exchanged and a gun was waved. CNN reported that it is very unlikely that serious criminal charges will be brought against the athletes. Lochte later apologized for his behavior on Twitter.
2. Failed to save his parents’ home
In 2014, Lochte’s parents lost their Florida home to foreclosure, according to the Daily Mail. At the time, the athlete was said to have a net worth of about $3 million. Steven and Ileana Lochte stopped making payments on their Port Orange home back in 2011 and owed more than $242,000. Despite his large bank account, his parents still lost the family home.
3. Wearing tiny speedos
During a party weekend in Las Vegas, Lochte stripped down to his speedos to soak up the sun while surrounded by beautiful women. During that weekend in 2014, the swimmer was seen drinking heavily and hitting the dance floor giving everyone a show, according to RadarOnline.
4. Charged with disorderly conduct
In 2010, the University of Florida police filed disorderly conduct charges against the swimmer who was physically fighting with others and swinging his arms and fists in an attempt to hit people. RadarOnline reported that Lochte pleaded no contest. The case was eventually dismissed but the swimmer was ordered to complete community service and pay a fine.
5. Caught urinating in public
After a fun night out, Lochte was fined and ordered to perform 22 hours of community service following being cited for public urination, according to ABC News. In the Rio incident, there were reports of one of more of the swimmers urinating in public.
Since the Rio incident, Ryan Lochte’s lawyer said his client is cooperating with authorities and had not been asked for further assistance in the case.
