US swimmer Ryan Lochte will be suspended from his sport for 10 months and will not be allowed to participate in the 2017 world championships as a result of his involvement in a gas station incident in Rio de Janeiro during the Olympics, a person with knowledge of the situation told CNN contributor Christine Brennan on Wednesday.

The United States Olympic Committee said it had nothing to report, and US Swimming — the national governing body for the sport — did not respond to CNN’s request for comment.

TMZ reported that the punishment was handed down not just by the USOC but by the IOC and US Swimming as well.
