Ryan Lochte Butters Up Fans As 'DWTS' Studio Goes On 'Lockdown'

His scary incident last week isn't stopping him from getting close to his fans.

Ryan Lochte isn’t letting his last scary performance get in the way of socializing with his fans.

The 32-year-old disgraced Olympic swimmer, who is now a contestant on season 23 of Dancing With The Stars, was spotted on his way to dance practice in L.A. on Sept. 18. As Star reported, during Ryan’s first performance with DWTS partner Cheryl Burke last week, security was forced to tackle protestors who stormed the stage wearing anti-Lochte t-shirts.

Now, as Ryan prepares for his second week of taping, Page Six insiders claim the studio is “ramping up security even through rehearsals and for the crew.” The source also told the publication, “This time they’re going to be patting people down. They’ve already sent out a memo saying come an extra hour early… They’re going to lock down the stage an hour ahead of time.”
