NEW YORK (AP) -- Roger Clemens is taking his former personal trainer to court over allegations of steroid use.
The Houston Chronicle reports Clemens has filed a defamation suit against former trainer Brian McNamee in Texas state court. The paper says the filing was entered last night just before the CBS broadcast of Clemens' interview with "60 Minutes."
The suit charges that McNamee knowingly lied when he accused Clemens of using steroids and human growth hormone. McNamee is
contemplating a defamation suit against Clemens. The pitcher reportedly asks in his suit that the court declare that he has not defamed McNamee.
Clemens is scheduled to hold a news conference today in Houston.
Clemens told "60 Minutes" that he might be willing to take a lie-detector test to clear his name. He maintains McNamee injected him only with a vitamin and painkiller.
