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

According to an affidavit from Austin police, Luke David Armstrong, 21, is charged with sexual assault on a child.

The alleged attack took place in June 2018 after a party in the Texas capital when Armstrong was 18, police said. The alleged victim, who was two years younger than him, reported it to the police last November.

An Armstrong attorney denied the charges, claiming that his client had been in a consensual relationship with the alleged victim for months, which has not been publicly mentioned.

“What happened in high school three years ago was neither a crime nor an assault,” the lawyer, Randy Leavitt, told KXAN.

It was a consensual relationship then and continued consensually between two young people, with both eventually going their separate ways.

“This charge should not have been filed, especially three years later.”

This is a story in progress.
