  • Police have arrested and charged Lance Armstrong's son, Luke, with sexual assault.
  • Armstrong's lawyer denied the allegations and said his client had a consensual relationship with the accuser.

The son of cyclist Lance Armstrong was arrested and charged with sexual assault of a 16-year-old girl in Texas, according to KXAN in Austin.

According to a police affidavit obtained by KXAN, Luke David Armstrong, 21, sexually assaulted the teen in 2018 when Armstrong was 18 years old.

KXAN reported that the victim told police she asked Armstrong to pick her up from a party where she had been drinking. She couldn't remember what happened next but said she woke up on a couch at Armstrong's home and was being assaulted, according to the report.

In a statement to KXAN, Armstrong's attorney denied the allegations and said the two had an ongoing relationship.

"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," lawyer Randy Leavitt told the station. "These charges should not have been filed and certainly not three years later."
