Former baseball slugger Jose Canseco was arraigned Tuesday in U.S. District Court in San Diego after being caught trying to smuggle the female fertility drug Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG) across the border from Mexico last week.
The self-proclaimed “Godfather of Steroids,” who exposed baseball’s doping culture with his 2005 book “Juiced,” appeared before Hon. Magistrate Judge Ruben B. Brooks and was charged with Introduction into Interstate Commerce of a Misbranded Drug, a misdemeanor.
Canseco’s next court date is Nov. 4 at 9 a.m.
According to the criminal complaint, Canseco, a female driver and the female driver’s “minor daughter” were stopped by Customs and Border Protection agents after entering California at the San Ysidro checkpoint Thursday. Upon inspection of their 2004 BMW, CBP agents found six vials of HCG and ten syringes in the center armrest compartment.
