Roger Clemens Sues McNamee

Shortly before a “60 Minutes” piece aired about Roger Clemens’ alleged steroid use, Clemens filed a defamation lawsuit against accuser and former trainer Brian McNamee.

Sports of Boston will have more from this story as it develops.

From the Associated Press:

Roger Clemens filed a defamation suit against former personal trainer Brian McNamee in Texas state court Sunday night, according to the Houston Chronicle, just before his interview with CBS’s “60 Minutes” was about to air.

Clemens claims McNamee was threatened with jail if he didn’t connect the pitcher to steroids, according to the suit, the Chronicle reported on its Web site early Monday. The suit was filed in Harris County civil courts, the paper said.

  3. I think he’ll get off scott-free and become this decade’s version of O.J. Simpson
