Trace Gallagher: “A security guard comes up to the car and starts speaking to one of the swimmers. You can see him in the window. He points at the guard he reashes inside the window but then right there after that the video jumps ahead three minutes.”
Via FOX News:
On Thursday Ryan Lochte said he did not lie about the “robbery” incident … and there are 3 minutes of missing surveillance video that will back up most of his story … this according to sources directly connected to the swimmer. Lochte said he was taken out of the taxi at gunpoint. You can see a fellow swimmer raising his hands as he leaves the taxi in the video posted above.
