Ryan Lochte Cleared of Criminal Charge in Rio Incident: Lawyer

Ryan Lochte received a 10-month ban for his part in an incident at a petrol station during the Rio 2016 Olympic Games

The 32-year-old has said he plans to try to make the USA team for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics so next year's Pan Pacific Championships in Tokyo would be an ideal tuneup for a 2020 campaign.

The investigation found that Lochte and has teammates had been detained by armed security guards, who drew their weapons and demanded that the swimmers pay them money for the alleged vandalism at the gas station. Ostrow said the prosecution has 15 days to appeal again. According to USA Today, Lochte had been charged with "falsely communicating a crime to authorities" due to his "exaggerated" retelling of events.

Initially, Lochte claimed he was "robbed at gunpoint", but later recanted after gas-station video footage showed anything but, and included Lochte being addressed by the gas station owner after he and fellow teammates vandalized the property.

Lochte subsequently said that he "definitely had too much to drink" that night, adding that he was still intoxicated when he provided false details to NBC's Billy Bush the day after the incident. "It has been a long year, but in the end, justice prevailed". While he was able to leave Brazil quickly, his three team-mates were detained, with Feigen agreeing to pay a fine of almost US$11,000 to expedite his departure.

Six-time Olympic gold medalist Ryan Lochte said on Friday he's not quite ready to plunge back into competition in the wake of his 10-month ban after family duties disrupted his recent training, website Floswimming.com reported. His suspension left him unable to compete at last month's U.S. nationals, making him ineligible for the world championships later this month in Budapest.

Lochte was suspended from the US national swim team for 10 months for his actions at the gas station, a penalty that ended July 1, USA Today reported.
