- U.S. Olympic gold medalist Ryan Lochte and three other members of the U.S. Olympic swimming team were robbed at gunpoint in Rio by armed gunmen posing as police officers early Sunday morning, he said.
Lochte told NBC [...] one of the men aimed a gun at his forehead during the robbery.
"I was with a couple swimmers, we got pulled over in our taxi and these guys came out with a badge, a police badge," Lochte said. "No lights, no nothing, just a police badge. They pulled us over. They pulled out their guns."
Thank goodness this didn't happen in Chicago! They probably would have been shot.
