Roger Clemens Indicted

Breaking news....A federal grand jury has indicted Roger Clemens for allegedly lying to Congress about using steroids. 
The seven-time Cy Young winner has been charged with perjury, obstruction of Congress and making false statements when he stated that he never used steroids or human growth hormone when he was questioned by the House Oversight and Government Affairs Committee in 2008. 

In response to the news of the indictment, which he expected,  Clemens made the following statement on twitter, "I never took HGH or steroids. And I did not lie to Congress. I look forward to challenging the government's accusations, and hope people will keep an open mind until trial. I appreciate all the support I have been getting. I am happy to finally have my day in court."

The case has been assigned to U.S. District Judge Reggie Walton and no date has been set for Roger Clemens initial court appearance.
