Roger Clemens indicted in baseball steroid caseThe former New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox baseball pitcher, Roger Clemens, has been indicted for allegedly lying to the US Congress. This was after it was found that Clemens lied while testifying before a congressional committee that he had never taken steroids or human growth hormone.

The name of Clemens was mentioned 82 times in a report by former Senate Majority Leader George Mitchell that detailed the sport’s problem with steroids in 2007.

The statement of Clemens in the past is a “self-inflicted wound”, as per former Rep. Tom Davis, the top Republican on the House of Representatives panel at the time of Clemens’ testimony.
