During the 2016 Rio Olympics, a 12 time Olympic medalist Ryan Lochte and his teammates claimed he was robbed at gun point outside the Olympic Village.

Turns out after an investigation by Brazilian police that the swim star was actually lying. CCTV footage actually showed the four swimmers vandalizing a bathroom and then getting into the a fight.

Lochte fled the country while two teammates were pulled off a plane and detained. And of course the international community didn’t like the antics by The American swimmers.

The grainy footage really revealed how bad the American swimmer and his teammates behaved on that drunken night. It was an international incident and went to show that you can’t go around doing whatever you want just because you are a famous athlete.

Lochte was suspended for 10 months, and his three other teammates were suspended for four months.

I take full responsibility. I’m human. I made a mistake. A very big mistake.”- Ryan Lochte¬†
