Ryan Lochte reportedly spends $12K on booze in Vegas nightclub

A little scandal never stopped Ryan Lochte from partying.

On Thursday — just weeks after the US Anti-Doping Agency banned him from competing for 14 months— the Olympic swimmer was spotted partying away to the tune of $11,500 at Hakkasan Las Vegas.

A spy told us that 10 of his friends joined him for his joint bachelor/birthday party at the hotspot.

Lochte and his crew got the festivities started with a dinner before heading to the VIP tables in the nightclub just before midnight. There, they spent $11,500 on Grey Goose vodka, Avion tequila and Veuve Clicquot Champagne before leaving just three and a half hours later, we’re told.

Lochte, who turned 34 on Aug. 3, tied the knot with Kayla Rae Reid in January, seven months after the birth of their son. But his agent told us that the couple “intend on having a celebration with family and friends later this year.”
