Gunnar Bentz, Jack Conger hear ‘liar’ chants in Brazil (Video)

Brazil police car

American swimmers Gunnar Bentz and Jack Conger were harassed with chants of “liar” and “shame” upon entering a car in Brazil on Thursday.

Bentz and Conger were pulled off their planes at the airport Wednesday after a Brazilian judge ordered their passports revoked pending further questioning of the robbery allegations made by Olympic swimmers Ryan Lochte and Jimmy Feigen. The two answered questions from authorities and were released, but a large crowd of angry folks awaited them.

You can hear people calling them “liar” and more in this video:

Globo reports that Feigen and Lochte have been indicted for filing a false police report. Lochte is back in the United States after flying home this week. Feigen, Bentz and Conger were still in Brazil as of Thursday.

The penalty for filing a false police report can be jail time or a fine. This security video from a gas station where the alleged robbery took place has been under scrutiny since it emerged on Thursday.
