The drama continues in Brazil, where one of the four American swimmers engulfed in controversy still remains.
Jimmy Feigen, the only swimmer involved in the alleged Rio robbery earlier in the week who has not returned to the United States, has agreed to contribute $11,000 to a Brazilian charity in an attempt to resolve the ongoing international incident, according to an ABC News report early Friday morning.
Feigen’s lawyer in Rio announced the agreement after meeting with a judge and officials from Brazil’s prosecuting ministry for four hours Thursday. The swimmer’s passport will be returned after the payment is made and he will be free to leave the country.

Police said Thursday that – if found guilty of providing false testimony – the swimmers would likely be required to pay a fine but would not face prison time.
As the controversy was brewing, Ryan Lochte returned to the U.S., leaving the other three to deal with an increasingly complex situation. Fellow swimmers Gunnar Bentz and Jack Conger left Brazil Thursday night after meeting with police, according to a statement from the U.S. Olympic Committee.
Feigen will reportedly donate 35,000 Reals to Reaction Institute, a non-governmental sporting program created by Olympic medalist Flavio Canto in 2003 that touts itself as an organization that uses judo to promote development and social inclusion.
Famous American mixed martial artist and judoka Ronda Rousey donated $30,000 to the institute in 2015.
This is a developing story.
