Ryan Lochte plans to receive treatment for an “alcohol addiction” that has been going on for “many years,” his attorney Jeff Ostrow confirmed to ESPN earlier today.
As first reported by TMZ on Saturday, Lochte made the decision to “immediately” seek treatment after an incident last week at a Newport Beach hotel, when staff members called the police after the 34-year-old Olympic swimmer reportedly tried to kick in his room door. No arrests were made.
Ryan Lochte tries to find a little normal in his life after a chaotic past few days that saw a drunken hotel tirade, a car accident and revelations of alcohol abuse.
The Olympic swimmer saw the grass mowing and watched his son Caiden outside his home in Florida on Sunday.
This is what rock bottom looks like.
