A Brazilian court has dismissed the criminal case against U.S. swimmer Ryan Lochte, who had been charged with filing a false robbery report during the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.The court confirmed in a statement this week that it tossed out the case after determining that Lochte's robbery claim made to NBC did not constitute the filing of a fake report, a crime punishable in Brazil by up to 18 months in prison.Lochte was supposed to return to action this weekend by competing in the Los Angeles Invitational, but he withdrew Friday, saying he was not in competition shape after the birth of his son, Caiden, last month.
