Armstrong Staff Member Arrives To Testify In LA
LOS ANGELES (AP) — A staff member of Lance Armstrong’s Team Radioshack has arrived at a Los Angeles courthouse to appear before a federal grand jury hearing evidence of alleged doping in professional cycling.
Exercise physiologist Allen Lim was seen reporting to the grand jury room around 9:30 a.m. Wednesday. He was greeted by an assistant U.S. attorney overseeing the probe, which has issued subpoenas and solicited testimony about whether Armstrong and other cyclists took banned substances.
Lim also has ties to disgraced cyclist Floyd Landis, who accused him in an e-mail earlier this year of helping him cheat during his career. Lim has denied Landis’ allegations.
Grand juries meet in closed session and testimony is sealed.
