He is an all-time home-run leader, but the courts say Barry Bonds is also a liar. He was indicted Thursday on charges of perjury and obstruction of justice for lying under oath to a federal grand jury looking into steroid use among pro athletes. "During the criminal investigation, evidence was obtained including positive tests for the presence of anabolic steroids and other performance-enhancing substances for Bonds and other athletes," the indictment read, according to the Associated Press.
Bonds attorney John Burris said, "I'm surprised," he said, "but there's been an effort to get Barry for a long time. I'm curious what evidence they have now they didn't have before." Bonds, surpassed home run hitter kind Hank Aaron, in August with 756 home runs. He told a grand jury in 2003 that he had never knowingly used performance-enhancing drugs.
