Barry Bonds indicted on federal Perjury and Obstruction of Justice charges
Barry Bonds was indicted Thursday for perjury and obstruction of justice. Bonds was charged with lying when he told a federal grand jury that he did not knowingly use performance-enhancing drugs.
The indictment read:
“During the criminal investigation, evidence was obtained including positive tests for the presence of anabolic steroids and other performance enhancing substances for Bonds and other athletes.”
Bonds, who is a free agent, passed Henry Aaron this year to become baseballs all time home run king. The indictment comes as a surprise to many including John Burris, one of Bonds’ attorneys. “I’m surprised” said Burris. “but there’s been an effort to get Barry for a long time. “I’m curious what evidence they have now they didn’t have before.”
I’m curious just like him. I really thought we were done with all the Bonds talk about steroids but hopefully now we will be able to find out now once and for all.
