Judge orders Ryan Lochte, James Feigen to stay in Brazil as robbery investigation continues

A Brazilian judge has ordered two American Olympic athletes to surrender their passports as authorities investigate a claim that they were robbed at gunpoint by people posing as police officers during the Rio Olympic Games.

The office of Judge Keylan Blank confirmed to The Associated Press that swimmers Ryan Lochte and James Feigen were to have their passports seized. However, Lochte's father told the wire service his son had returned to the United States before the order was issued.

It was not clear if Feigen remained in the country.

Patrick Sandusky, chief external affairs officer for the U.S. Olympic Committee, said officers asked to meet with the swimmers Wednesday morning to get their passports.

“The swim team moved out of the (Olympic) Village after their competition ended, so we were not able to make the athletes available,” Sandisky said. “Additionally, as part of our standard security protocol, we do not make athlete travel plans public and therefore cannot confirm the athletes’ current location. We will continue to cooperate with Brazilian authorities.”

Four members of the U.S. Olympics Swimming Team – Gunnar Bentz, Jack Conger, Feigen and Lochte – said they were robbed Sunday as they took a taxi from France House to the Olympic Village, the Olympic Committee said.

“Their taxi was stopped by individuals posing as armed police officers who demanded the athletes' money and other personal belongings,” the Committee said in a statement. “All four athletes are safe and cooperating with authorities.”

A police official told The Associated Press authorities have not been able to verify that the robbery took place. Speaking on the condition of anonymity because of the ongoing investigation, the officials said police have been unable to find witnesses or the swimmers' taxi driver.

Gator surprises beachgoers after washing ashore on Myrtle Beach

Folks walking along the beach in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, found a companion out enjoying the sun and surf: a 4-foot alligator.

>> Read more trending stories

Sharon Martin told The Sun News that she and a friend were taking their daily walk along the beach on Monday evening when the gator came walking out of the ocean.

They called 911 and emergency crews were dispatched. But after a short time lounging on the beach, the alligator headed back to the surf on its own.

The animal was spotted later in the evening and was eventually captured and released into a safe place.

No one was injured, but Martin said she had never seen anything like it and that it was pretty frightening to see an alligator coming out of the surf.

 

Thousands of Olympic volunteers are quitting

Athletes being robbed, pools turning green -- the 2016 Olympic Games certainly haven't been a walk in the park.

But now, Olympic officials are dealing with another issue: a shortage of volunteers.

>> Read more trending stories  

Before the games kicked off, officials selected 50,000 volunteers to do everything from directing fans to venues to driving Olympic officials around.

But a spokesperson for the Rio 2016 organizing committee told the The Wall Street Journal that at some places, only 1 out of every 5 volunteers showed up to help out.

An Olympic official told another outlet the average overall volunteer attendance is close to 70 percent.

Even though organizers have a volunteer waiting list, it doesn't appear that's helping.

So why aren't volunteers showing up?

Some say they quit because they were overworked, underappreciated and barely fed.

One volunteer, who travels two hours every morning to get to her post, said she's overworked.

She told CBC, "They ask us to come to work really early and then hold us back when it's time to go home."

Another volunteer who recently quit told the outlet volunteers only got one small snack for their entire shift. He said, "I don't think the organizing committee had enough consideration for people's lives and welfare."

According to Newsy, some volunteers are still waiting for their assignments. The games end Aug. 21.
