Bonds indicted

By

From the AP:

Barry Bonds was indicted Thursday on perjury and obstruction of justice charges, the culmination of a four-year federal investigation into whether he lied under oath to a grand jury looking into steroid use by elite athletes.

Update: KTVU has more. Bonds is facing a five-count indictment – four counts of perjury and one of obstruction of justice. A free agent right now, Bonds probably won’t see too many offers heading his way this winter.

    Man, that KTVU article is really poorly written. Perhaps it was written in haste, but I can think of about 10 or 20 bloggers with more writing ability in their little fingers than these folks….

      The spelling mistakes are particularly bad. Spell check would tell them how to spell obstruction.

      Wouldn’t that be a pretty picture, who would be the bitch?

        Come on now. With that high lispy voice of his, and his time in SF, his flair for drama, overall bitchiness…you know who the bitch will be.

    What took them so long?

    Much as it pains me to say it — I highly doubt they will ever get a conviction.

    I can’t believe that if they had any damning evidence they wouldn’t have used it before he broke the record. I could be wrong, but I highly doubt they suddenly found something incriminating at this late stage in the process.

    Seems like a last desperate attempt to stick it to him since the Grand Jury was going to be released anyway. Couldn’t happen to a nicer guy, I might add. ;-)
