    RIO DE JANEIRO — Two American swimmers were pulled off their flight to the United States by Brazilian authorities, United States Olympic officials said Wednesday night, the latest indication that the police are skeptical of the swimmers’ claims that they were held up at gunpoint during the Rio Games.

    “We can confirm that Jack Conger and Gunnar Bentz were removed from their flight to the United States by Brazilian authorities,” a spokesman for the United States Olympic Committee said. “We are gathering further information.”

    Another site said Feigen was supposed to be on the flight, but didn't show up. A judge ordered his passport taken away earlier today.

    http://www.businessinsider.com/swim...lleged-robbery-pulled-off-plane-in-rio-2016-8

    NBC's Peter Alexander first reported that Bentz and Conger were pulled off their plane on Wednesday night. NBC also reported that Feigen was supposed to be on the same flight as Bentz and Conger, but that he never showed up at the airport even after checking in online.

    According to NBC, Feigen's whereabouts are currently unknown.

    It's going to be like Midnight Express, except Rio style.

    That's for sure. It was probably not in their best interest to start shit in a different country.
