LOS ANGELES (CBS/AP) — The FBI has contacted a Colorado restaurant to get surveillance tapes of a conversation between seven-time Tour de France winner Lance Armstrong and former teammate Tyler Hamilton over the weekend.

Hamilton went on “60 Minutes” last month and accused Armstrong of doping repeatedly and encouraging his teammates to using performance-enhancing drugs as well. On his Web site, Armstrong’s spokesman tore into Hamilton calling him “a confessed liar in search of a book deal.”

Armstrong and Hamilton ran into each other at a restaurant in Aspen on Saturday night.

Hamilton attorney Chris Manderson says his client was rattled by some of Armstrong’s comments. Armstrong and one of his lawyers say the conversation was uneventful.

A co-owner of the restaurant, which is called Cache Cache, said Tuesday that the FBI was coming to take the restaurant’s surveillance tapes. It’s unclear whether the conversation was captured on tape.

A federal grand jury in Los Angeles has been investigating doping in cycling for more than a year, with Armstrong as a primary focus.
