Two men rushed the "Dancing with the Stars" stage in protest against embattled US Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte as he fielded comments from judges after his performance on the ABC dance competition show on Monday, according to media reports.

Lochte has been embroiled in scandal after he admitted he "over-exaggerated" a tale about being robbed and held at gunpoint with three other swimmers after a party during the Rio Olympics. The gold medalist lost all four of his sponsors and was suspended from competition for ten months after he apologized for lying about the incident.

Lochte was standing on stage next to his partner, professional dancer Cheryl Burke, after their performance as judges were critiquing their moves when two men ran onto the stage in protest, according to an ABC affiliate in Los Angeles.

Security guards tackled the men and several protesters were escorted out of the audience, the station reported.
