Jimmy Feigen to pay his way out of Rio; $10,800 'donation' to 'resolve' case, attorney says

Feigen has agreed to "donate" $10,800 in exchange for getting his passport back and being able to leave the country, Feigen's attorney told reporters Friday morning.

"After a long deliberation, this agreement was reached … he will donate 35,000 real (approximately $10,800) to an institute, and with that the case is resolved," the attorney, Breno Melaragno, told reporters, per NBC News.com.

"After this donation is done, his passport will be given back to him, and he will be free to return home," Melaragno also said. He did not say what institute would receive the money.

US swimmer Ryan Lochte and three others robbed

Lochte, Gunnar Bentz, Jack Conger and Jimmy Feigen were stopped by people posing as armed police, the US Olympic Committee (USOC) said in a statement.

The robbers demanded money and other personal belongings.

After reports emerged of the incident, the USOC initially denied that Lochte had been robbed.

"All four athletes are safe and co-operating with authorities," the USOC's statement said.

The group had been attending a party at the French Olympic team's hospitality house when their taxi was stopped on the way back to the athletes' village.
