Bentz and Conger were released by Rio authorities after they were pulled off the plane but were instructed to stay in Rio to continue discussions. According to the Associated Press, they were the ones who first told the Rio authorities that the story had been fabricated.
The alleged fabrications paint Lochte as the hero, but if the current allegations are true, he appears to be the villain of this story.
UPDATE 8:31pm ET:
ABC is reporting that the swimmers insist their story is true and that the police are lying about "certain aspects" of the case. That conflicts with earlier reports that Bentz and Conger told the police the story was a fabrication.
Additionally, ESPN reports that Lochte and Feigen have not been indicted. Veloso told the outlet that the swimmers may still face charges, but those won't come until after the investigation has been completed. Police have only recommended charges at this point.
Veloso also said, though Brazilian police said otherwise earlier in the day, the security guards did use a gun to control the situation. He also stated that the athletes refused to wait for police to arrive at the scene and offered to pay the equivalent of $51 American dollars to pay for damage to the bathroom door and mirrors.
