Ryan Lochte Speaks to NBC's Matt Lauer for Olympic Primetime

Embattled U.S. swimmer Ryan Lochte will again be the subject of an exclusive interview-his third-with NBC, and his second with Matt Lauer. The bulk of the discussion will then air during Saturday night's NBC Olympics coverage, with the remaining portion to air on the Monday, August 22 edition of NBC's TODAY Show.

Lauer was in contact with the Olympian during the scandal.

"Lauer and Lochte will discuss the events of the past week following the incident involving Lochte and fellow USA swimmers Jimmy Feigen, Gunnar Bentz, and Jack Conger", NBC said in a statement.

Officers only began investigating once they saw media reports in which Lochte's mother spoke about the incident.

According to police, Lochte and three other American swimmers vandalized a gas station bathroom after partying.

In his detailed account, Bentz said Lochte stood up and got into a "heated verbal exchange" with the guards.

He said it was traumatic to have been out late with his friends in a foreign country - with a language barrier - and to have had a stranger point a gun at him and demand money to allow him to leave. Some officials have even called for them to be charged with reporting a false crime. "We will further review the matter, and any potential consequences for the athletes, when we return to the United States".
