My impression from the broadcast was that Meb kept running in to Rupp, who was basically running straight ahead but not running over anyone.
Of course both runners were aiming to get the same place, that same objective always happens in races and people need to adjust.
However, I'd like to see some evidence, photos or a video that shows Rupp was clipping or running any closer to Meb than Meb was to Rupp.
My impression from the video was that Meb was totally out of line, Cragg was embarrassed for him, and Rupp was quite professional. I'm impressed with his run, and with his and Salazar's interviews afterwards.
