Sh*t just hit the fan!
Earlier this week, Ryan Lochte claimed that he and three of his teammates — Gunnar Bentz, Jack Conger, and Jimmy Feigen — were robbed at gunpoint by thieves pretending to be cops.
However, the Brazilian government totally called BS, and wanted to question the athlete about his claims.

While Lochte and Feigen returned to the US before they can be interrogated, Conger (pictured left) and Bentz (right) weren't so lucky.
On Wednesday, the Team USA swimmers were yanked off a flight as they tried to leave the country.
As of now, the United States Olympic Committee is still trying to figure out why the two athletes were detained.
As we reported, there is a theory that Ryan lied about the mugging so he could get out of an argument with girlfriend Kayla Rae Reid!
Forget about swimming! The real drama is happening OUTSIDE of the pool!
