>> The US swimmers involved in last week's bizarre confrontation at a Rio gas station are now opening up about what really went down. In separate statements, swimmers Gunnar Bentz and Jack Conger saying security guards confronted them after they've urinated behind some bushes. And teammate Ryan Lochte tore a metal frame poster off a wall.

The swimmers gave the guards $50 cash for the damage. The testimony and video surveillance footage are contradicting Lochte's initial story about being robbed at gunpoint by men posing as police. The incident growing into an international embarrassment, souring South America's first games. Bentz and Conger were held in Brazil for hours of questioning and were finally allowed to board a plane home Thursday night.

Then on Saturday, a Brazilian judge revoking permission for him to leave the country even though he had already done so. Lochte on Friday posted an apology on Instagram for his quote behavior, but did not clarify what actually happened.
