Ugly Americans? Is This What Really Went Down in Rio?

The U.S. Olympic swimmers facing questions about their reports of being robbed in Rio de Janeiro were involved in a fight at a gas station in the city and committed acts of vandalism there, Brazilian newspaper O Globo reports. This apparently occurred after they found an outside bathroom locked and tried to kick it in.

According to the owner of the Barra da Tijuca gas station, who the newspaper said chose to remain unnamed, the athletes threw stones at the business and tore one of its signs before urinating in the street.

"They stopped next to the gas station, and urinated outside right next to the gas station. We even have images of one of the athlete's butts, as he is pulling up his pants," the owner said.
