Stay tuned on this one....
The Washington Capitals and Washington Nationals were specifically named by a man Tuesday night after he was arrested for being an alleged steroids dealer, although police said they could not yet substantiate his claims.
Richard Thomas and his wife, Sandra, were arrested Tuesday night by the Polk County Sheriff's Office and that officials seized steroids valued at about $200,000, according to WFLA.com. Investigators said Thomas told them he was the biggest steroid provider in Central Florida and that he sold mainly to pro athletes, including the Caps and Nats.
"We asked him, because we knew that would create a firestorm, on two more occasions because we don't want to be quoted as saying that," Judd said. "Richard Thomas told us that he sold steroids to ball players on those teams. Now is that one ball player? Two ball players? We don't know."
While Thomas named the two Washington franchises, he would not name anyone by name.
"I can tell you this," Sheriff Grady Judd told WFLA.com, "there will be a whole lot of people puckered up after the morning news."
While I'm not surprised about folks in baseball being named, this type of stuff hardly happens in the NHL. I am not at all saying this isn't true, butwith today's athletes always wanting to get either bigger/stronger/faster, or recover from injuries quicker, you just never know what they are doing ontheir own time.....
*Whatever he was selling the Nats clearly wasn't working...jk
