Rio is a Joke” U.S. swimmer Ryan Lochte, teammates robbed at gunpoint in early Sunday morning in Brazil; armed man pointed gun at Lochte's head

Security anyone?  What a joke Brazil is.  Thank God he and his mates are alive to talk about it. 

NY Daily News reports Ryan Lochte’s got neon green hair – and veins full of ice water.

The U.S. Olympic swimmer, 32, says he and three teammates were robbed early Sunday by armed gunmen while returning to the Olympic village in Rio – and that one of the attackers pointed a gun to his head after Lochte refused to comply.

“These guys came out with a badge, a police badge, no lights, no nothing, just a police badge and they pulled us over," Lochte told NBC News for an interview on “Today.” “They pulled out their guns, they told the other swimmers to get down on the ground … they got down on the ground. I refused, I was like, ‘We didn't do anything wrong, so … I'm not getting down on the ground.’

"And then the guy pulled out his gun, he cocked it, put it to my forehead and he said, 'Get down,' and I put my hands up, I was like 'whatever.' He took our money, he took my wallet — he left my cell phone, he left my credentials."
