Feds sue Lance Armstrong


WASHINGTON (WKOW) -- The U.S. Justice Department officially filed a lawsuit against cyclist Lance Armstrong.

The lawsuit says Armstrong violated his contract with the U.S. Postal Service by doping while riding for the team.

The government wants to get back some of the $40 million the agency spent sponsoring Armstrong's cycling team for six years.

Armstrong admitted his drug use back in January.
