Dance Crashers! Two men have been arrested after rushing the stage following Ryan Lochte’s performance on last night’s live season premiere of “Dancing with the Stars.” The men were wearing anti-Lochte T-shirts.
The American Olympic swimmer has been criticized since claiming he and three teammates were robbed at a gas station in Rio last month. He was subsequently banned from the US swimming team for 10 months and had to forfeit $10,000 in bonuses for lying. Viewers at home couldn’t see what happened, but heard judge Carrie Ann Inaba shout “Hey back, off” at the men. Host Tom Bergeron took the show to commercial and afterward said there had been “a little incident.” Lochte’s reacion: “Honestly, it felt like someone just reached inside, took my heart out and tore it to shreds,” Lochte said. “I was really hurt when I saw that and I was in shock.”
In happy news: at the top of the leaderboard last night – Canadian James Hinchcliffe!
