Police said the swimmers said they had not been robbed, although the athletes have not commented publicly. On Wednesday, Bentz and Conger were pulled off a flight in Rio bound for the United States and barred from leaving until they gave a statement to police. Police said they interviewed the two on Thursday. Feigen provided authorities with a revised statement Thursday evening “with the hope of securing the release of his passport as soon as possible,” the US Olympic Committee said. What we don’t know Exactly when did the four swimmers leave the party? Judge Keyla Blanc De Cnop, in her court order, said the swimmers allegedly made statements to police that they left the party at the France house at 4 a.m. selection processHowever, Alexandre Braga, chief of the tourist police force in Rio, told journalists Wednesday that the swimmers left the party at 5:45 a.m. Lochte’s attorney, Jeff Ostrow, said he couldn’t pin down the timing but said it was around 5 or 6 a.m. Both Lochte and Brazilian authorities said money was exchanged and a gun was brandished at some point, but that can’t be seen on the security footage. And while this video shows that Lochte didn’t tell the whole story, it doesn’t technically rule out the possibility of a robbery.
