U.S. Olympian Gunnar Bentz, who Thursday was suspended four months for his role in an drunken incident at a gas station in Rio hours after the conclusion of the swimming competition, issued a brief statement via Twitter in which he accepted the issued punishments.

Bentz is currently a junior at the University of Georgia, and a spokesman for Georgia confirmed to Swimming World that the suspension will not affect his status with the school or its swimming program.
