Rocket is Indicted

A federal grand jury filed charges Thursday against former pitcher Roger Clemens for allegedly lying to Congress about his steroid use.

Clemens faces six counts of obstruction of Congress, providing false testimony and perjury.

According to the indictment, Clemens obstructed a congressional investigation with 15 statements made under oath, denying he used steroids or human growth hormone. The indictment alleges he lied and committed perjury.

The winner of seven Cy Young awards and his former trainer, Brian McNamee, testified under oath at a congressional hearing in 2008 and was contradicted on the use of banned substances by Clemens.

McNamee told federal authorities, baseball investigator George Mitchell and the committee of the House of Representatives between 1998 and 2002 injected Clemens more than a dozen times with steroids and human growth hormone.

Clemens claims that McNamee is lying.

"As far as our task, we reinvidicados" said Earl Ward, one of McNamee's lawyers.
