According to the Enquirer, Lance Armstrong raced after a man who was seen mugging a woman and brought him to the ground with his front wheel.

Lance uses bike to foil crim?

The Enquirer claims the rescue took place in Santa Monica, not exactly the mugger capital of the US.

According to the US mag, Armstrong was cycling with a friend when he saw the mugging and gave chase. A mugger on foot is not likely to out-run any decently fit cyclist so it was tough luck he committed his crime in front of the still-fast Tour de France seven times winner.

The report – unconfirmed as yet and very possibly a fabrication – says the mugger made a get away after Armstrong handed the purse back to the female victim.
