Clemens Indicted for Lying to Congress Over Steroid Use
Thursday, August 19, 2010
A federal grand jury indicted seven-time Cy Young Award winner Roger Clemens for allegedly lying to Congress about using steroids. The former Yankees pitcher faces charges of obstruction of Congress, making false statements and perjury.
Clemens and his former trainer, Brian McNamee, testified in 2008 before a House committee, and contradicted each other about whether Clemens had used steroids and human growth hormone. McNamee told federal agents that he injected Clemens dozens of times between 1998 and 2001, but Clemens says his trainer was lying.
