Per the report, one of the swimmers also ripped down one of the advertisement signs in the gas station.
On Wednesday, Bentz and Conger were pulled off their plane and their passports were seized. Feigen’s was also seized. Per a statement from the U.S. Olympic Committee, the three athletes in Brazil are cooperating with authorities.
Lochte left Brazil on Tuesday and is back in the United States.

Earlier on Thursday, it was reported that the four swimmers got into a fight at the gas station, including one of them breaking down a door.
The robbery was first reported on Sunday. The four swimmers reported that they were mugged by men disguised as police with guns. Lochte said that one of them put a gun to his head.
