Pat Hickey greets Rio police last week
[Mr Pat Hickey’s[ lawyers’ statement says that, contrary to police reports, Mr Hickey did not try to escape when officers arrived at his hotel last Wednesday and did not try to resist arrest.
On account of insomnia, their client was using one of three rooms allocated to him and his family.
His lawyers said it would have been ridiculous for Mr Hickey to try to escape and go to the next room, which was officially booked to him.
They said that his wife was taken by surprise with almost ten officers standing at her door at 6am, and panicked.
