Hamilton subpoenaed to appear before grand jury
NEW YORK — Former professional cyclist Tyler Hamilton has been subpoenaed to appear before a grand jury, though his attorney refused to say whether it has anything to do with a federal investigation involving Lance Armstrong.
Chris Manderson said that Hamilton, a former teammate of Armstrong on the U.S. Postal Service team, “understands his legal obligations” and will cooperate with the grand jury.
The subpoena of Hamilton was first reported by ESPN.com.
“I can’t comment on whether it’s the Lance Armstrong doping case,” Manderson told The Associated Press late Friday.
Disgraced cyclist Floyd Landis recently went public with allegations of organized doping on the U.S. Postal Service team from 2002-04, when Armstrong won three of his seven titles.
