Clemens trial features talk of DNA steroids and needles

WASHINGTON (KWWL) -

Prosecutors say needles and cotton balls that Roger Clemens' former trainer says he used to inject the star pitcher in the middle of his career tested positive for Clemens' DNA and anabolic steroids.

Assistant U.S. attorney Steven Dun ham revealed the results during opening arguments in Clemens' trial on charges of lying to Congress about using performance-enhancing drugs.

Clemens' attorney has accused former trainer Brian McNamee of fabricating the evidence in case he needed to blackmail Clemens into continuing to employ him.

Clemens has said the only things McNamee ever injected him with were Lidocaine for his joints and vitamin B-12.

But Durham says neither substance was found on the needles or cotton swabbed with his blood stains. Lidocaine is a common local anesthetic.
