While the public has been distracted by Colin Kaepernick’s national anthem protest, many people have forgotten about Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte’s lies that lead to the arrest of three teammates. Last night’s episode of ‘Dancing With the Stars’ proves that not everyone has forgotten. Two men rushed the dance floor while Lochte was receiving feedback from the judges following his performance with dancer Cheryl Burke. The infurated fan attempted to strike Lochte, but was quickly tackled by security. The footage that aired on ABC was blocked by a replay of Lochte’s dance, but some of the raw video was shared on ABC7 Eyewitness News’ twitter feed.

The judge can be heard yelling “excuse me!” while the man approaches Lochte. Two protesters were arrested for attempting to assault the Olympian. Each protester wore a shirt with the name “Lochte” crossed out.
