Jimmy Feigen to pay his way out of Rio; $10,800 'donation' to 'resolve' case, attorney says

If you're wondering what the going rate for freedom is for police suspects being held in Brazil, use U.S. Olympic swimmer Jimmy Feigen as a guide.

Feigen has agreed to "donate" $10,800 in exchange for getting his passport back and being able to leave the country, Feigen's attorney told reporters Friday morning.

"After a long deliberation, this agreement was reached … he will donate 35,000 real (approximately $10,800) to an institute, and with that the case is resolved," the attorney, Breno Melaragno, told reporters, per NBC News.com.

"After this donation is done, his passport will be given back to him, and he will be free to return home," Melaragno also said. He did not say what institute would receive the money.

Feigen was one of four U.S. swimmers — Ryan Lochte, Gunnar Bentz and Jack Conger were the others — who claimed they were robbed at gunpoint at a service station in Rio de Janeiro early Sunday. Lochte gave what now is largely considered a false account to police. Feigen, Bentz and Conger were detained Wednesday and Thursday in Rio. Lochte left Brazil before he could be detained.

Reports Thursday evening said Lochte and Feigen had been "indicted" for filing false reports, but Rio's local police chief later said the two were still under investigation.

Bentz and Conger were released Thursday night and returned to the United States.
