The Aspen Police Department on Thursday provided to the media photographs of damage to a sport-utility vehicle belonging to world-famous cyclist Lance Armstrong. According to police, Armstrong, who owns a home in Aspen’s West End, was driving the vehicle Dec. 28 when he hit two parked cars on West Francis Street following a party, police said. His girlfriend, Anna Hansen, initially told police that she was the driver who hit the vehicles but later admitted it was Armstrong, police said. On Jan. 12, police cited him on suspicion of failure to report accidents and exceeding safe speeds for conditions. His case is scheduled for Pitkin County Court on March 17.
