Lance Armstrong’s son a chip off the old block? Son of infamous cyclist Lance Armstrong, Luke Armstrong, has been accused of sexually assaulting a teenager in 2018, according to an arrest affidavit issued earlier this month. The victim met Armstrong for the first time in June 2018 when she went to his family’s Texas mansion with a mutual friend. At the time, she was 16 and Armstrong was 18. According to details from the arrest affidavit, Armstrong picked her up after she could not find a ride home, but she did not remember the car ride with him.

The affidavit says 21-year-old Luke David Armstrong sexually assaulted a 16-year-old after a party in south Austin in June 2018. He was 18 at the time.

Armstrong’s attorney, Randy Leavitt, denied the allegations and claimed that the two were in a consensual relationship that lasted months. He said the Armstrong family is supporting their son and is gathering evidence to present to the district attorney which dispute the victim’s claims.

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

The victim told police in November 2020 that she asked Armstrong to pick her up from the party after she had been drinking. The victim says she didn’t remember the ride in Armstrong’s truck but remembered waking up on a couch at a house where Luke lived and being sexually assaulted, the affidavit says.

Luke Armstrong is currently enrolled at Rice University and is set to graduate with a degree in sports management in 2022, according to his LinkedIn.

He plays football for the school.

Lance has posted with his son on several occasions:
