After nearly a week of unscrambling versions of stories, Ryan Lochte is putting the pieces of his Rio robbery scandal back together in the public eye.
While sitting down with Matt Lauer for his first televised interview since news broke of his exaggerated story, the 32-year-old swimmer is clarifying new portions of his tale, including his speculated behavior on the night in question.
Although police officials said Lochte appeared angry and belligerent toward the security guards at the Shell gas station, the athlete begs to differ.
"That's not me...getting mad and angry and wanting to fight or anything like that," he replied. "I was upset that we got pulled out of the taxi...there was no reason for a gun to be pulled out for us for doing nothing."
However, he does acknowledge there had been a pointed when the conversation got "heated."
"I think when I got up and I started [saying] like...this is BS. We shouldn't be treated like this. There's no way we want to go back in the car. We want to go back. That's when it got heated," Lochte explained. "The guy probably [drew] his gun from that."
