Ryan Locthe’s Rio woes are still ongoing. The 32-year-old Olympic swimmer has been trying hard to move on from his infamous robbery scandal during the 2016 games: he’s doing well as a contestant on “Dancing with the Stars” and he recently proposed to his model girlfriend. But his legal drama is far from over.

Lochte and US swim teammate Jimmy Feigen were both charged with filing false police reports. Lochte’s legal team requested that the criminal case against him be dropped and TMZ reports that the request was denied by a judge. If that’s not bad enough, the judge transferred the case from the Court of Justice to the higher Ministry of Justice. It’s expected that Lochte will have to pay a handsome fine. Feigen coughed up $11,000 in lieu of jail time. Let’s hope there’s some “DWTS” prize money in store for Lochte.​
