Ryan Lochte LIED About Robbery? Teammates RAT OUT Olympic Swimmer?

Olympic swimmer, Ryan Lochte fabricated a story about being robbed at gun point in Rio.

The revelation came after Lochte’s teammates, Jack Conger and Gunnar Bentz, were detained and questioned in Brazilian officials.

An official who has direct knowledge of the investigation told PEOPLE that around 6 a.m. on Sunday, Lochte, along with Conger, Bentz and Jimmy Feigen, stopped at a gas stopped at a gas station in Barra da Tijuca, a suburb of Rio.

One of the swimmers reportedly tried to open the door of a bathroom at the gas station and found that it was locked. The swimmer then began kicking the door open. A security officer and the gas station manager approached the group and asked them to pay damages.

The men then became belligerent, the official said. An argument ensued, leading the security guard to point a gun at the men and insist that they pay for the damages. The swimmers then reportedly handed over their wallets and left the station. The official says the manager called the police, but when they arrived, the swimmers were already gone.

After the incident, the 32-year-old Olympian told media that he and his fellow athletes were held up after robbers posing as police officers pulled them over in a taxi.

“Their story was not right,” the police source tells PEOPLE. “We knew on Sunday that their story was not right, because it didn’t make sense.”

“The stories that the two men told us were not the same,” the source continued. “The other two men would not speak to us. So we knew that they were lying.”

The incident was captured in CCTV footage obtained by PEOPLE that shows the men attempting to get into the wrong cab to leave the scene, then being asked to get out of their second cab by gas station security.

“Everything they said was a lie and not true,” the official said of the men’s later reports of a robbery. “When [Lochte] went on American TV and said his story, it made Brazil look bad when he was the one who had been doing the wrong thing.”

The United States Olympic Committee is aware of the video.

“The video shows a completely different story than what we were told by the athletes,” a USOC source told PEOPLE. It’s very disappointing to all of us.”

“We are reaching out to Ryan to ask him to set the record straight and be completely upfront with what happened, whatever it was,” the source said. “Nothing happened that can’t be fixed, but everyone needs to be on the same page, and we all need to know exactly what happened.” h/t people
