2 US swimmers leave Rio after robbery scandal; 3rd pays fine
RIO DE JANEIRO - Two U.S. Olympic swimmers are back in the U.S. after being pulled off a plane in Brazil and questioned about claims that they had been robbed. Teammate Ryan Lochte had claimed that he, the two swimmers and another teammate had been robbed in a taxi in Rio, but authorities now say Lochte lied, and the four had actually vandalized a gas station bathroom. A lawyer says the fourth swimmer, still in Rio, has worked out a deal to donate nearly $11,000 and then he can return home.
