"Dancing with the Stars" did not get off to a good start for Olympic swimmer <b>Ryan Lochte</b>. Two protesters stormed the stage after his routine on Monday night.
ABC didn't show it on camera, but it showed judge Carrie Ann Inaba's reaction.
The protesters were detained by the show's security team and taken into police custody. Los Angeles police spokesman Mike Lopez did not publicly identify the men by early Tuesday.
Lochte said he was "heartbroken" by the incident.
Before the protesters took the stage, Lochte and professional dance partner Cheryl Burke had earned a 24 out of 40.
Here's ABC's official statement on the incident.
Fans of the show on Twitter remembered the last time Lochte claimed to be in danger.
It sounded like Brazilian officials just tried to arrest Ryan Lochte on Dancing With the Stars. Something happened.— Frank Isola (@FisolaNYDN) September 13, 2016
When in Rio, Lochte and other Olympic swimmers had a drunken encounter at a gas station.
The report that he was robbed at gunpoint later turned out to be false.
