Ryan Lochte is still in shock over what happened on Monday's Dancing With the Stars live show.
The LAPD tells ET that two men, ages 25 and 59, ran onto the stage, and did not have valid tickets to the ABC show's taping. The men were booked for trespassing, and transported to Metropolitan Detention Center in downtown Los Angeles, California. Bail has been set at $1,000 each.
Moments after the live show ended, ET’s Nischelle Turner spoke to the Olympic swimmer about what had just transpired and his emotions.
The 32-year-old, who is currently serving a 10-month suspension from USA Swimming
following his Rio scandal, was candid about his feelings in the moment and credited Burke for keeping his eye on the prize.
“Honestly, it felt like someone just reached inside, took my heart out and tore it to shreds,” Lochte said. “I was really hurt when I saw that and I was in shock. But I looked at Cheryl and she just smiled and said, ‘You just did what you said you can’t do. You danced in front of millions.’ And I was like, ‘You’re right.’”
“So you know what? I’m gonna keep moving forward and put this behind me and I’m gonna better myself every day and just, you know, come here [to do] what I came to do and dance,” he added. “I’m gonna dance.”
ET also spoke to Burke, who said she was “beyond proud” of how Lochte handled the tense situation.
Derek Hough, who helped throw out the anti-Lochte protesters, was unbelievably supportive of the Olympic swimmer and his calm demeanor in the midst of those chaotic few minutes.
“I felt the energy in the room change. I’m really sensitive to that, honestly. I got really defensive, not just for Ryan but for the ballroom, for the show,” he told ET.
A BBC Worldwide Productions spokesperson addressed the incident in a statement on Monday night, saying, "Two individuals stormed the dance floor tonight and were immediately subdued and escorted out of the building. The matter is now being handled by the authorities."
