Ryan Lochte, the Olympic swimmer bro who couldn’t stay out of trouble in Rio de Janeiro, has been suspended for 14 months by the United States Anti-Doping Agency over a self-incriminating Instagram post.
The agency announced on Monday that Lochte, 33, accepted his suspension for “his use of a prohibited month,” Deadspin reports. On May 24, Lochte posted a photo of himself on Instagram getting an “athletic recovery” IV drip with vitamins.

The photo led to an investigation by the agency, which determined Lochte hadn’t taken illegal drugs. But he did break rules banning athletes from receiving more than 100 milliliters of a permitted substance via IV in a 12-hour period without permission.
The swimmer, whose 14-month suspension has a retroactive start date of May 24, is now ineligible for the U.S. National Championships and next year’s World Championships, according to Deadspin. Lochte’s careless IV drip photo could also cost him his spot at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. It looks like his white privilege won’t be his saving grace this time around.
