Justice Department Wants Cyclist Lance Armstrong to Pay for Lying about Performance-Enhancing Drugs

Lance Armstrong has made a lot of money in cycling. 

Now the Justice Department wants some of that money and may sue Armstrong for allegedly profiting.

The Justice Department is going after cyclist Lance Armstrong, saying he defrauded the U.S. government by denying years of using performance-enhancing drugs, the Associated Press reports.

One of Armstrong’s long-time sponsors was the U.S. Postal Service, the AP wrote.

Speaking to an attorney familiar with the case, the AP reported that attorneys from both sides have been meeting in hopes of reaching a settlement.

However, the AP wrote, both sides disagree wildly on what’s owed.
