Monday's Dancing With the Stars premiere took an unexpected turn.

Ryan Lochte and Cheryl Burke had just performed the foxtrot on the show when protesters rushed the stage. Judge Carrie Ann Inaba was in the middle of giving Lochte and Burke her feedback when two men wearing anti-Lochte T–shirts appeared.

Inaba told the protesters to "back off" when she saw them rush the stage and security quickly stepped in and detained the two men, who the LADP has identified as Barzeen Soroudi and Sam Sotoodeh.

So what happened to the protesters and how is Lochte doing today after the ambush?
