Ryan Lochte has found himself in hot water again. this time, the Olympian has been busted for violating the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency's rules. and he basically snitched on himself.
He did not take a banned substance, but he got an intravenous injection of vitamins in May - and since it exceeded 100 milliliters, no matter what was involved, he broke anti-doping rules.
The investigation revealed that Lochte received an IV of permitted substances at an infusion clinic in a volume greater than 100 mL in a 12-hour period without a Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE).
Lochte posted a photo of himself on social media receiving the IV which prompted an investigation. He was entered in four events at the national championships that start Wednesday in California.
Lochte claimed he and his friends had been robbed at gunpoint by men wearing police badges and uniforms but this story soon unravelled, provoking outrage in Brazil and embarrassment in the United States.

"This is devastating for my family and me, and I was finally back in top shape", Lochte said.
"I have never taken a prohibitive substance", Lochte said.
"I wasn't taking anything illegal".
Usada said the ban is retroactive to 24 May, which was the day he posted the photo, and will run through June 2019, ruling him out of the next two major worldwide meets: August's Pan Pacific Championships and the 2019 World Championships in Gwangju, South Korea.
Lochte said he won't give up on swimming. He reiterated Monday that he wants to compete in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, though those hopes would seem to be in at least some doubt now. And I know there's other athletes that don't know this rule.
Lochte will turn 36 during the Tokyo Games. He won gold medals at the 2004, 2008, 2012 and 2016 games, and if he were to find a way to win another in Tokyo he would become the oldest Olympic swimming champion. "If anything this is going to add more fuel to my fire".
