Cops: Lance Armstrong Hit Two Parked Cars, Girlfriend Took Blame

According to Colorado police, Lance Armstrong literally hit two parked cars with his car in Aspen, and figuratively threw his girlfriend under the bus.

Armstrong and his girlfriend Anna Hansen were leaving a party on Dec. 28 when the vehicle allegedly hit two cars. Hansen told officers that she was driving, but later admitted Armstrong was. She also told a renter of one of the cars that Armstrong was driving, too. Per the AP:

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 the 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 told police, according to the reports.

He called 911 to report a hit-and-run. Hansen and Armstrong left the scene before police arrived.


Police cited Armstrong with failing to report an accident and speeding on Jan. 12.
