U.S. Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte won't be going to jail in Brazil after all. According to Entertainment Tonight, Lochte's criminal case in the South American country has been dismissed. An appellate court in Brazil cleared the 32-year-old of any criminal charges, concluding that Lochte did not break the law when he lied about the details of an incident at a gas station during the Rio Olympics in August. Lochte and three other team mates were drunk and had vandalized a gas station bathroom, but told police and the media they'd been robbed at gunpoint. The appeals court also ruled that Brazilian law was not broken because the investigation was initiated by the authorities in Rio, not Lochte. Also, what he said in his NBC interview did not constitute a false report. Prosecutors now have 15 days to decide whether they will challenge the ruling.
