Brazilian police are considering charging a group of U.S. Olympic swimmers with vandalism and giving false testimony, Rio's police chief said Thursday, accusing them of lying about an incident that has marred South America's first Games.Three of the four swimmers involved in the incident at a Rio gas station are being prevented from leaving the country pending the outcome of the police probe. Veloso said there was no robbery as described by the swimmers and that investigations instead revealed that the swimmers' taxi had pulled into the station where they behaved in a hot-tempered way and damaged the station's bathroom.Earlier, Brazilian TV aired a video that showed the swimmers did not tell the whole truth in their original accounts.
