The last of the four Olympic swimmers involved in an alleged Brazilian robbery investigation is going home.
James Feigen, the 26-year-old gold medalist, has agreed to pay roughly $11,000 dollars or 35,000 Brazilian reals in exchange for his seized passport. As NBC News has confirmed, he gave a revised statement overnight to police and a judge.
"After a long deliberation, this agreement was reached...he will donate 35,000 real [approximately $10,800] to an institute, and with that the case is resolved," Feigen's attorney Breno Melaragno told reporters, according to NBC News. "After this donation is being done, his passport will be given back to him, and he will be free to return home."
The athlete's passport was originally seized after Judge Keyla Blanc De Cnop issued the order on Wednesday, demanding that teammate Ryan Lochte turn in his passport also. However, he had already arrived home in the United States. Gunnar Bentz and Jack Conger's passports were released to them Thursday, U.S. Olympic Committee CEO Scott Blackmun said in a statement. The two were later sighted checking into a departing flight out of Brazil and arrived in Miami Friday morning.
The passport seizure came as a result of discrepancies found in the swimmers' testimonies regarding a robbery they claimed to have suffered early Sunday morning. While Lochte has initially told NBC's Billy Bush their taxi had been pulled over by fake police officers, he later told Matt Lauer that the four had been at a gas station to use the bathroom when the alleged robbery happened.
