(Newser) – American swimmer Jimmy Feigen finally gets to go home, but it will cost him about $11,000. He will donate roughly that amount to an unspecified charity and get his passport back under a deal struck with Brazilian authorities, reports NBC News. "And with that the case is resolved," says his Rio attorney.

Feigen and Ryan Lochte told a now infamous tale of being robbed that has quickly unraveled this week: Brazil's investigation concludes that there was no robbery—the swimmers vandalized a gas station's bathroom, were questioned by security guards, and handed over $50 before leaving. Two other swimmers involved have been questioned and released. Lochte is already back in the US, and it's unclear if he might face charges. More developments here.
