Lance Armstrong has pleaded guilty to careless driving in last year’s incident which saw Lance side swipe two packed cars, authorities said on Wednesday.

The incident which Lance’s girlfriend initially took blame for occurred last year in the Colorado Ski Resort of Aspen.

According to Pitkin County Clerk’s office the 43 year old cyclist made payments of up to $238.50 in fines as well as court costs last week by mail so as to avoid court appearance.

Lance Armstrong was banned for life from racing and seven of his Tour De France tittles stripped in 2012 after an Anti-Doping investigation. Lance later during an interview with Oprah admitted to using performance enhancements drugs during his professional career.

Armstrong was ordered by arbitrators this week to make payments of $10 million to a sport insurance company as bonuses the cyclist was receiving from the company from his victories in a case which the arbitrators are calling, "an unparalleled pageant of international perjury, fraud and conspiracy."

In the incident which occurred late December last year in Aspen, the 43 year old cyclist was cited for driving too fast for the roads icy condition as well as leaving the scene of an accident.

Police reports indicate that Armstrong’s long time girlfriend Anna Hansen when approached by one of the locals who had the incident and went to find out what happened apologized for the incident promised the local that she will pay for the damages that were caused.

Later investigations proved that Lance Armstrong if not responsible had a major role to play in the incident.
