Police say two men are under arrest for rushing the dance floor after Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte’s [[ LOCK-tee ]] debut on ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars.” The two were tackled by security when they ran onto the stage in an apparent protest while Lochte and partner Cheryl Burke were getting feedback from the judges.

The men, later identified as 48-year-old Sam Sododeh and 40-year-old Barzeen Soroudi, were authorized audience members, but later changed into anti-Lochte t-shirts to disrupt the broadcast. And in fact, the in-studio audience gave Lochte and Burke a standing ovation following the disruption.

The incident didn’t appear on camera, but was captured and posted online by a fan via Instagram. Several female protesters were also removed from the audience. At press time, no one had offered a statement as to what the protestors were focused on. While the men arrested called Lochte a “liar,” it’s not clear if they were focused on the recent scandal at the Rio Olympics.
