Ryan Lochte Is the Ugly American
John McDermott

“Instead, it appears the four vandalized a Shell gas station and tried to pay off the security guards present with the equivalent of about $50.”

From what I’ve read, only two were involved in vandalizing the bathroom, and the swimmers didn’t try to buy their way out of the situation — payment was demanded, at gunpoint, by the security guard and/or manager before they would let them leave. That in no way excuses Lochte’s behavior or the lies he told.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
