Brazilian police said Thursday that swimmer Ryan Lochte and three U.S. teammates were not robbed after a night of partying, and the intoxicated athletes instead vandalized a gas station bathroom and were questioned by armed guards before they paid for the damage and left.

Under Brazilian law, a judge must decide whether to accept the police indictment. If the judge does not accept the indictment, the case will be dropped. Falsely reporting a crime is punishable by a fine or up to six months in prison.

The U.S. Olympic Committee said in a statement late Thursday that the swimmers’ behavior was “not acceptable, nor does it represent the values of Team USA or the conduct of the vast majority of its members.”
