Champion cyclist Lance Armstrong’s son has been arrested for sexually assaulting a 16-year-old girl nearly three years ago. 

Luke David Armstrong, 21, is facing a charge of sexual assault of a child, according to an affidavit from the Austin Police Department. 

The alleged assault took place in June 2018 after a party in the Texas capital city when Armstrong was 18, police said. The alleged victim, who was two years his junior, reported the incident to police last November. 

An attorney for Armstrong denied the allegations and claimed that his client had been in a months-long consensual relationship with the alleged victim, who has not been named publicly.    

‘What occurred three years ago in high school was not a crime and was not a sexual assault,’ the attorney, Randy Leavitt, told KXAN. 

‘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.’ 

This is a developing story.
