DEVELOPING: Clemens To Be Indicted

The New York Times reported on its website that federal authorities have decided to indict Roger Clemens on charges of making false statements to Congress about his
use of performance-enhancing drugs.

Michael Schmidt's piece says it based its report on information from two sources briefed on the matter and said an announcement should come fairly soon.

Clemens and his former trainer, Brian McNamee, testified under oath at a hearing before a House committee and contradicted each other about whether Clemens had used the banned substances. Clemens denied and claimed McNamee "misremembered."

The committee held the hearing in February 2008.

McNamee has told federal agents, baseball investigator George Mitchell and the committee that he injected Clemens more than a dozen times with steroids and human growth hormone from 1998-01.
