Another night of drams for Olympic swimmer medalist, Ryan Lochte Monday when he was rushed and attacked on live TV.  Lochte quickly went from Olympic Hero to villain after fabricating a story of being attacked by Rio police last month.  After losing multiple endorsement deals, forfeiting $100,000 in bonuses and being suspended from world competition swimming events for 10 months, he was offered a slot on the current season of ABC's Dancing With The Stars.  Monday night (September 12, 2016), Lochte and his partner, Cheryl Burke, made their debut and were being critiqued by judge, Carrie Ann Inaba, when she began saying, "hey, back off" repeatedly, as two unnamed men rushed the stage wearing t-shirts with Lochte’s name with a red line through it.  Security quickly acted and detained the attackers and they were later arrested for trespassing. Although the altercation was not caught on camera, the sound was there.  Thanks to TMZ for capturing the rouse:

Fortunately no one was injured.  Lochte said that "so many feelings are going through my head right now." Lochte added that he was "a little hurt, but I came out here. I wanted to do something I'm completely not comfortable with, and I did."
