(CNN)I've represented "Ryan Lochte." Probably a couple of thousand times in my career. If I remember correctly, he's the guy who came up with a story to try and explain away really stupid behavior and do so in a way that makes him look good, or makes him look like the victim. He tries to put all the responsibility on somebody else, anybody else. It could be a co-defendant, could be the true victim of the crime, could be a mother or a father or a spouse or a neighbor.
