As it turns out, orchestrating a break-in may not be the best way to prove your innocence. That’s the lesson American cyclist Floyd Landis may learn the hard way after a French judge issued an international arrest warrant, accusing Landis of hacking into the computer system of an anti-doping lab. “He was summoned by the judge, he didn’t come, so he’s now under an international arrest warrant,” explained Pierre Bordry, the head of France's anti-doping agency. Landis was stripped of his Tour de France title in 2006 when he “tested positive for banned testosterone,” according to the agency. He has since been trying to prove his innocence in the matter, searching for documents he says would exonerate him. “It seems that [Landis] made all he could to enter into our computer system to try to prove the laboratory was wrong […] the judge traced a network of hackers back to the ringleader,” Bordry said.
