Roger Clemens Charged With Making False Statement To Congress


Retired major league baseball star pitcher Roger Clemens was indicted today by a federal grand jury in Washington, D.C., on charges of making false statements to Congress about his use of performance-enhancing drugs, reports the Washington Post.

In February 2008, Clemens, a seven-time Cy Young Award winner who pitched for the Boston Red Sox, Toronto Blue Jays, New York Yankees and Houston Astros, and Brian McNamee, his former trainer, contradicted one another in testimony before a House committee about whether Clemens had used banned substances. The hearing occurred after McNamee linked Clemens to banned substances in former Sen. George Mitchell’s report on baseball players’ use of performance-enhancing drugs.
