U.S. swimmers taken off flight from Brazil

RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) — The U.S. Olympic Committee says American swimmers Jack Conger and Gunnar Bentz were taken off a flight to the U.S. by Brazilian authorities. Earlier, a judge ordered gold medalist Ryan Lochte and teammate Jimmy Feigen to stay in the country as police investigate their claim they were robbed during the Olympics. Lochte, who had already left Brazil, and his three teammates said they were held up at gunpoint in a taxi. Police have found little evidence so far to support their accounts.
