As you're probably aware, Ryan was charged with filing a false police report after footage came out that showed the swimmer drunk and hanging out with some teammates at the gas station in question.
While the 32-year-old has already talked a bit about his lie, on Tuesday morning Lochte sat down with GMA to chat it up about the controversy as he explained how the lie came about, saying:
"I'm not one to make excuses, but I was still intoxicated."
Uhm, that sure sounds like an excuse to us! LOLz!
However, the gold medal winner did admit that he fabricated the truth when saying he had a gun pointed to his head:
"Like I said, I did lie about that one part. I take full responsibility. I'm human. I made a mistake. A very big mistake."
