Roger Clemens Takes to Twitter Following Indictment

By Alex Weprin 

Earlier today Roger Clemens was indicted on perjury charges related to testimony he gave before Congress. Naturally, he responded to the charges the way every celebrity does: by tweeting about it.

Clemens tweeted about the indictment this afternoon, writing:

I never took HGH or Steroids. And I did not lie to Congress. I look forward to challenging the Governments accusations, and hope people will keep an open mind until trial. I appreciate all the support I have been getting. I am happy to finally have my day in court.


That is more than 140 characters, luckily he used Twitlonger. Whew. And yes, Clemens signed his tweet “Rocket.”
