Lance Armstrong’s son charged with sexual assault of teen 💥💥

The son of disgraced cycling icon Lance Armstrong has been arrested for allegedly sexually assaulting a teenage girl in 2018.

The Austin Police Department says Luke Armstrong, 21, allegedly assaulted a 16-year-old girl after a party in Austin. He was 18 at the time.

His lawyer Randy Leavitt firmly denied the allegations, saying the pair were in a relationship at the time and what occurred was consensual.

“What occurred three years ago in high school was not a crime and was not a sexual assault,” he said.

“It was a consensual relationship then and continued consensually between two young people with both ultimately going their separate ways. These charges should not have been filed and certainly not three years later.”

According to an arrest affidavit, the victim reportedly told police late last year she had asked Luke for a lift home from the 2018 party.

However, she said she did not recall that ride in his vehicle and only remembers allegedly being sexually assaulted after waking up at his house.

Luke was arrested after a police investigation, but was released on bail this week.

Mr Leavitt said the sexual interaction between Luke and the alleged victim was not a one-off.

“It wasn’t a one-time thing,” Mr Leavitt said.

“They had something of a relationship going on for a brief period of time. A complete review of the facts will confirm what has been alleged absolutely did not occur. And a proper and thorough legal process will exonerate Luke.”

Lance Armstrong won seven Tour de France titles but later admitted to taking performance-enhancing drugs during each of those victories from 1999 to 2005.
