Lance Armstrong is in the news once again. However, this time, it’s not for something that he did.

His son, Luke, has been arrested in Texas. He allegedly is the person of interest in a sexual assault with a minor investigation.

The now-21-year-old Luke David Armstrong has been accused of sexually assaulting a 16-year-old minor following a party in Austin, Texas in June 2018.

Armstrong was 18-years-old when the alleged incident happened.

At this time, Armstrong’s attorney Randy Leavitt is denying the allegations against his client. He is also alleging that the two individuals were in a consensual relationship that lasted for months, Leavitt said.

Also, he said that the Armstrong family is standing behind their son against these allegations. Leavitt said he will be presenting evidence to the district attorney that will contradict the victim’s claims.

“What occurred three years ago in high school was not a crime and was not a sexual assault,” Leavitt said in a statement. “It was a consensual relationship then and continued consensually between these two young people with both ultimately going their separate ways. These charges should not have been filed and certainly not three years later.”

The alleged victim, in this case, came forward to the authorities in November 2020 when she alleged that she asked him to pick her up from a party. She claims that she had been drinking.

Then, she alleges, that she did not remember being in his truck. However, she remembers waking up on a couch at a house, where she claimed the sexual assault happened.

One month later, Armstrong admitted to having sex with the alleged victim at his father’s house.

Leavitt claims that their relationship was more than a one-time interaction. He claims that the interaction happened for several months.

“It wasn’t a one-time thing,” he said. “They had something of a relationship going on for a brief period of time.”

Armstrong was released on a personal recognizance bond on Tuesday. He is cooperating with the investigation.

“A complete review of the facts will confirm what has been alleged absolutely did not occur,” Leavitt said. “And a proper and thorough legal process will exonerate Luke.”
