Lance Armstrong hit two parked cars and let girlfriend Anna Hansen take blame
Lance Armstrong and his girlfriend Anna Hansen have been caught in a lie about a driving incident in December where their vehicle hit two parked cars and left the scene.
Aspen police say Armstrong’s car was identified as the one that hit two parked cars on Dec. 29 and left before police arrived to the scene. Armstrong’s girlfriend initially took the blame and said she was driving the car. She claimed they returned on foot after hitting the cars and she offered to pay for the damage. She also said she was driving because Lance had been drinking at a party they attended that night.
A police investigator did not buy Hansen’s story, so the investigator contacted the valet service, which said it was Armstrong who got into the driver’s seat. Confronted with the new information, Hansen changed her story and said she and Armstrong stopped at a store and switched seats. Two days later, she changed the story again and finally admitted Lance was driving, but she wanted to emphasize he was not drinking.
There was also a statement from one of the victims who says Hansen came up to his home to apologize and offer to pay for damages.
“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.
Armstrong received citations for failing to report the incident and speeding. He is expected in court in March, TMZ says.
Typical Lance. The guy let’s his girlfriend take the rap for him, but at least he found a girl willing to cover for him. I wonder if they were playing Cards Against Humanity at the party when Lance got drunk.
