Federal prosecutors charge baseball's home run king with 14 counts of lying to a grand jury and one count of obstruction.

"5:30 PM PDT, May 13, 2008
SAN FRANCISCO -- Federal prosecutors have filed a new indictment against Barry Bonds, charging the home run king with 14 counts of lying to a grand jury and one count of obstruction when he denied knowingly using performance-enhancing drugs.

Bonds originally was charged with four counts of perjury and one count of obstruction of justice last Nov. 15, but U.S. District Judge Susan Illston ordered prosecutors on Feb. 29 to rework the indictment so that each charge alleged only one lie rather than lumping several alleged falsehoods into single counts."

No new charges, just new indictment.

If convicted, I say "pull the homerun record"! It's tainted.
