Ryan Lochte got quite a scare last night during the live airing of ‘DWTS’ when two protesters stormed the stage screaming “liar” in protest of Lochte’s lying scandal in Rio a few weeks ago. The protesters were tackled by security and charged with misdemeanor trespassing, the LAPD confirmed to ABC News today.

Lochte and fellow swimmers have been in the headlines after claiming to be robbed at gunpoint while in Rio at the summer Olympics. Upon further investigation the story was found to be untrue. Lochte lost endorsements received disciplinary action  behind the false claims.

In a post-performance interview, Lochte appears to be unmoved by the incident and intends to continue with the show.
