Roger Clemens acquitted in perjury case
In a nationally televised hearing, Clemens said that his former strength coach Brian McNamee had injected him with just vitamins and the painkiller lidocaine. However, McNamee told the same committee that he injected Clemens with human growth hormone on several occasions.
Clemens' defense argued that the government's case was weak since prosecutors had only McNamee as an eye witness to the steroid use.
The baseballer originally faced the same charges in July 2011, but the case was declared a mistrial.
