Olympics Gold medalist Ryan Lochte reportedly was left stunned after one or more people rushed the stage where he was being judged Monday night on ABC's "Dancing With The Stars."

According to a CBS New York report, Lochte and dance pro Cheryl Burke had just finished their routine when judge Carrie Ann Inaba suddenly said: “Excuse me! Hey, back off" – as two apparent security men ran by, Deadline.com reported.

Off camera, host Tom Bergeron could be heard saying "Wow," Deadline.com reported.

"We’ll take a quick break and then get the rest of the judges’ comments," Bergeron then announced. "Take a deep breath."

Cameras didn't show what happened, but Lochte and Burke looked stunned,  and after the break, Bergeron thanked the security staff for being on top of the incident, Deadline.com reported.

"We had to go to break because we had a little incident," Bergeron said upon returning. "I’d like to personally thank our security team for staying in shape."

When the show resumed, Lochte said, "I'm doing good. So many feelings are going through my head right now. A little hurt."

Burke added, "I'm shocked and I'm hurt for Ryan," Deadine.com reported.

Lochte was banned from swimming through next June and will forfeit $100,000 in bonus money that went with his gold medal at the Olympics, part of the penalty for his drunken encounter at a gas station in Brazil during last month's games.
