Lance Armstrong Lets Girlfriend Take Blame for His Alleged Hit & Run

Lance Armstrong Lets Girlfriend Take Blame for His Alleged Hit & Run

It has just announced that Lance Armstrong‘s longtime girlfriend Anna Hansen initially took the blame for a December accident in Aspen, according to NBC News.

The 43-year-old ex-cyclist was the actual driver, who hit two parked cars, and then decided to leave the scene before police arrived.

“We’ve had our family name smeared over every paper in the world in the last couple of years, and honestly, I’ve got teenagers,” Anna told the police during an interview. “I just wanted to protect my family because I thought ‘Gosh, Anna Hansen hit some cars,’ it’s not going to show up in the papers, but ‘Lance Armstrong hit some cars,’ it’s going to be a national story.”

Anna won’t be facing any charges for the accident, but Lance has received a summons for failing to report an accident and driving too fast under the harsh conditions.

    I suppose there were people inside the 2 parked cars. Anyway who cares? He’s stolen many medals from true fighters. He doesnt even deserve to get attention but to be completely ignored. But we cant change the past thats for sure. Too many people know him and he still has got the money. No morals, no principles… All sh*t.
