Lance Armstrong Accused Of Hitting Two Cars, Letting Girlfriend Take Blame
[su_right_ad]Good to know he’s straightened out his character.
Police cited Armstrong with failing to report an accident and speeding weeks after the Dec. 28 accident, but only after his girlfriend, Anna Hansen, acknowledged lying for him.
Armstrong declined immediate comment on Tuesday. His attorney, Pamela Mackey, didn’t immediately return a call.
Hansen initially told police she had been driving home from an Aspen Art Museum party when she lost control of Armstrong’s GMC Yukon on icy roads, hitting the cars. She said she drove because “Lance had a little bit to drink,” according to the reports.
A man who had been renting one of the damaged cars told a police detective that Hansen came running up to his house in high heels, apologizing and promising to pay for the repairs.
“She said, ‘I’m Anna, we’re the Armstrongs, my husband’s Lance, he was just driving maybe too fast around the corner or something,'” the man, Thomas Van Allen, told police, according to the reports.
Police say Hansen and Armstrong left the scene before police arrived.
