LOS ANGELES (AP) — Ryan Lochte says he feels “a little hurt” after being involved in an incident on “Dancing with the Stars” that prompted producers to cut to a commercial.
The beleaguered swimmer was apparently rushed by unknown people while receiving his scores from Judge Carrie Ann Inaba on Monday’s live installment of the celebrity ballroom dance competition.
“Dancing with the Stars” host Tom Bergeron said the show was interrupted by “a little incident” and thanked the ABC series’ security team.
The swimmer told Bergeron that “so many feelings are going through my head right now — a little hurt, but I came out here. I wanted to do something I’m completely not comfortable with, and I did.”
Police say two men are under arrest on suspicion of criminal trespassing.
Los Angeles police spokesman Officer Mike Lopez says the two men were detained by security on the set Monday night until officers arrived to take them into custody. He did not have the men’s names.
Lopez says no one was injured or listed as a victim in the incident.
It’s not clear whether the men made any physical contact.
Lochte and teammates have been the object of scorn by some since they were involved in an early-morning drunken encounter at a Brazil gas station during the Olympics before claiming they were threatened and robbed.
He was banned for 10 months, required to forfeit $100,000 in bonuses and will miss the 2017 world championships.
ABC did not immediately return messages seeking comment about the incident.
