There was quite a bit of excitement last night on ABC’s Dancing With The Stars when two men ran onto the stage toward contestant, Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte. During the season premiere, security had to storm onto the stage as Lochte, had just finished his performance with partner Cheryl Burke.  The men, wearing anti-Lochte T-shirts, jumped onto the stage just as judge Carrie Ann Inaba was beginning to critique his performance.

Los Angeles police arrested Sam Sododeh, 48, and Barzeen Soroudi, 40, both of Los Angeles, on trespassing charges. The two men had tickets but reportedly were not wearing the T-shirts when they entered the studio. As they were being taken away by police, on of the men was heard saying, “We want to publicize that this is a bad decision to have a liar be publicized as a star.”   Lochte, a 12-time Olympic medalist, was recently banned for 10 months from domestic and international swimming competitions after lying about an incident at a gas station in Rio de Janeiro during the Olympics. – initially saying he was robbed at gunpoint to then recanting and apologizing.
