The Associated Press reports:
The indictment charges Bonds with lying when he testified he never knowingly used performance-enhancing drugs, even though prosecutors say he flunked a private steroids test in 2000. Bonds’ personal surgeon, Dr. Arthur Ting, collected the blood sample and is expected to be called as a witness if Bonds’ case goes to trial.
Bonds, after a big display of waving and smiling to fans, maintained his innocence. And frankly, we didn’t buy it–not that it matters.
Perhaps his defense attorney, Allen Ruby, said it best: “Mr. Bonds is a Major League Baseball player.”
