Report: Feds on Verge of Investigating A-Rod, PED Clinic
Federal prosecutors may investigate the performance-enhancing drugs clinic tied to Alex Rodriguez, who is facing severe sanctions--and perhaps even a lifetime ban--for again reportedly violating Major League Baseball's drug policy.
The New York Daily News reported:
Federal prosecutors have renewed their interest in Anthony Bosch and his Biogenesis anti-aging clinic, raising the specter of criminal drug distribution charges; if they subpoena Rodriguez as a witness in the case, any sworn statements he might make in arbitration while challenging his pending suspension could put him in legal jeopardy.
According to the Miami Herald, "prosecutors Patrick Sullivan and Sharad Motiani of the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Miami will lead the investigation and that they have contacted former Biogenesis employee Porter Fischer, who earlier this year leaked documents to a South Florida weekly that linked Rodriguez and the other players to Bosch and his clinic."
