Ryan Lochte had a close call with a would-be attackers during the premiere of Dancing with the Stars last night. Luckily for him, the men who rushed the stage was intercepted by security.
Apparently, it all started after Lochte finished his dance routine with Cheryl Burke and stood next to Tom Bergeron, waiting to see what scores he would get from the judges. Then two people in audience ripped open their shirts to show off “No Lochte” T-shirts underneath and began booing. Both protesters rushed the stage.
Here’s behind-the-scenes footage of the incident.
Clearly, Al Roker isn’t the only one fed up with Ryan Lochte. Both men were reportedly arrested for criminal trespassing.
Host Tom Bergeron also had some comments on what occurred.
Pretty wild start to the season.
