Former San Francisco Giants slugger Barry Bonds has been indicted on five counts of perjury and obstruction of justice.
The indictment was announced today (11/15), stemming from Bonds' testimony in late 2003 before a federal grand jury investigating BALCO in San Francisco. Bonds denied under oath that he took or received performance-enhancing steroids.
One of the most interesting facts to emerge from the indictment is the fact that Bonds received a positive test for steroids, yet no action was taken against him by Major League Baseball.
