Report: Swimmer Ryan Lochte reaches deal with Brazilian authorities over false report
Ryan Lochte has been offered a deal to clear his name over his infamous gas station incident during the 2016 Rio Olympics.
According to TMZ, unnamed law enforcement sources claim they offered the swimmer a deal to pay 70,000 reals - which comes to a little over $20,000.
Lochte's lawyer would not confirm the deal to TMZ.
Brazilian authorities disputed that claim, as surveillance footage from the incident, the Olympic village, and witness statements told a different story.
They charged Lochte with falsely reporting a crime.
He was suspended from U.S. Swimming for 10 months.
Lochte later joined "Dancing with the Stars" and has since gotten engaged to Playboy's Kayla Rae Reid.
