Armstrong facing legal trouble

Lance Armstrong has a new opponent, and it's not another athlete. It's the US Justice Department.

The feds have joined the fraud suit against the former cycling hero. They're accusing him of ripping off the US Postal Service for more than $30 million.

They said he cheated the Postal Service by lying about the team's drug use, and now they want the money back.

The case is seeking triple damages plus penalties, which could amount to roughly $100 million.
