Stallone Caught with Human Growth Hormone
So remember last month when Sylvester Stallone and posse were stopped by customs in Australia and detained for a few hours? We never knew what he was stopped for, so we wondered. Weapons? Sex toys? Cocaine?
Well, tonight we found out that the "Rocky" actor faces charges of importing a banned substance: muscle-building hormone. From an AP story:
Prosecutors said Tuesday that 48 vials of human growth hormone were found with the actor. The hormone is officially considered a performance-enhancing drug in Australia and it cannot be imported without a permit from the government. The maximum penalty for bringing it into Australia illegally is a fine of $86,000 and five years in prison. Stallone is unlikely to face the maximum penalty.
