Apparently Lance Armstrong isn’t quite through with his cheating ways.
According to the Associated Press, Armstrong had too much to drink on a December night in Aspen and hit two parked cars. The twist to this standard drunken tale: Lance let his girlfriend, Anna Hansen, shoulder the blame “to avoid national attention.” She initially lied to the police and said she drove before fessing up the truth:
“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, I just wanted to protect my family,” Hansen told police. “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.”
If we’re being real, the logic behind the decision makes sense, the execution just left much to be desired. OR, you know, she could have just driven to begin with.
Also, for those who have no idea who Hansen is (like me before this story), some fun facts:
- She’s had two kids with Lance
- Promotes pro-Lance articles (that’s how you know she’s all in)
- Met Lance while working for a cancer survivors/fighters charity called First Descents
- Biology degree from the University of Colorado
