Cops Around The Country Getting Busted For Using Steroids

Steroids — they’re not just for linebackers anymore. Some police officers, presumably seeking to get any edge they can to survive on the streets, are getting busted for ‘roiding it up in increasing numbers.

AOL rounds up recent busts of steroid-using cops in Ohio, Indiana, Michigan and Oregon, quoting a Drug Enforcement Administration spokesman:

“It’s a big problem, and from the number of cases, it’s something we shouldn’t ignore. It’s not that we set out to target cops, but when we’re in the middle of an active investigation into steroids, there have been quite a few cases that have led back to police officers.”

Police say they use the drugs to recover from injuries rather to improve their statistics, but we’ll see what Hall of Fame voters have to say about that.
