RIO (CNN) — US Olympic swimmer James Feigen has agreed to make a 35 thousand reais (nearly $11,000) contribution to a Brazilian charity organization, Civil Police in Brazil said Friday in a statement.
The statement posted on Facebook said that the decision was made in a court appearance to answer police accusations that Feigen and fellow swimmer Ryan Lochte had made false claims that they were robbed.
Feigen was among four US swimmers who Lochte said had been robbed at gunpoint by men posing as police officers at a gas station in Rio de Janeiro, a story that police maintain is false.
