WASHINGTON (AP) - Baseball player Miguel Tejada has been charged with lying to Congress about
steroids. The All-Star shortstop is scheduled to appear in court
tomorrow, where he is expected to plead guilty.
Documents filed in Washington federal court indicate that the
Houston Astros infielder has a plea agreement in place.
Tejada is charged with lying to investigators for the House
Committee on Oversight and Government Reform in 2005, when he
denied knowledge of an ex-teammate's use of performance enhancing
drugs while both were playing for the Oakland A's.
The news comes a day after New York Yankees superstar Alex
Rodriguez admitted to past use of performance-enhancing drugs.
The FBI also is investigating whether seven-time Cy Young winner
Roger Clemens lied to Congress last year when he denied using
steroids or human growth hormone.
