Reuters is reporting that U.S. prosecutors in charge of Barry Bonds’ federal perjury and obstruction of justice charges filed papers Thursday saying the home run king tested positive for steroids in Nov. 2001, just more than a month after hitting his record setting 73rd home run. Investigators also claim Bonds received the steroids he tested positive for from his former trainer, Greg Anderson. Here’s the quote from U.S. prosecutors:
“At trial, the government’s evidence will show that Bonds received steroids from Anderson in the period before the November 2001 positive drug test, and that evidence raises the inference that Anderson gave Bonds the steroids that caused him to test positive in November 2001,” U.S. Attorney Joseph Russoniello wrote in a legal filing, according to Reuters.
The claim comes from papers which were filed as a part of the federal perjury case against Bonds.
