Roger Clemens’ chief accuser, trainer Brian McNamee, took the stand today and described the time he began injecting Clemens with anabolic steroids in 1998. Clemens120514_McNamee_1

He said Clemens first approached him with a bottle of pills and some glass ampoules. “I told him they were no good, that they were toxic. I said get rid of them”. Clemens120514_McNamee_2

A few days later, according to McNamee, Clemens had him come to his hotel suite. “When I got there Roger had the needle, gauze, and alcohol all set up in his bathroom on a towel”.

“He asked me if I could help him with a booty shot”, said McNamee.

About

Courtartist is me, Art Lien. I've been sketching the courts since 1976, and for most of that time the U.S. Supreme Court has been my regular beat. I've been working almost exclusively for NBC News since 1980. Courtroom sketching is a form of visual journalism or reportage drawing that is slowly dying out. Where once upon a time news organization each had their own artist covering a story, today a "pool" artist often sketches for all. It is a demanding and stressful discipline where the drawing is often done directly and under tight deadline.
