Roger Clemens indicted on steroid charges

A federal grand jury indicted baseball legend Roger Clemens for lying about steroid use. The 7-time Cy Young Award winner faces charges of obstruction of Congress, perjury, and making false statements. During an investigation on the MLB’s steroid use, Clemens told a House committee in a 2008 hearing that his wife had used human growth hormones but not him. Clemen’s former trainer on the other hand told the same committee that he injected Clemens more than a dozen times from 1998-2001. Clemens is facing some serious jail time but like any strategic defendant, took to his Twitter to defend himself saying:

“I never took HGH or Steroids. And I did not lie to Congress. I look forward to challenging the Governments accusations, and hope people will keep an open mind until trial. I appreciate all the support I have been getting. I am happy to finally have my day in court.”
