It looks like authorities in Rio are serious about holding Ryan Lochte accountable!
According to TMZ, police in the 2016 Olympic city have officially charged Ryan with filing a false police report on August 14. The news comes on the heels of rampant speculation as to whether or not cops would punish Lochte for using a fake robbery story to cover up his act of vandalism at a gas station.

For those who want to see the 32-year-old held accountable, it looks like they'll have to find solace in his recently lost endorsements.

Remember when Janis Ian cut holes in Regina George's tank top, and Regina wore it anyway?
Something like that must have happened to Kendall Jenner.
