Alleged 'clear' supplier indicted in BALCO case
SAN FRANCISCO -- An Illinois chemist was indicted for allegedly supplying BALCO with the performance-enhancing drug known as "the clear."
A federal grand jury accused Patrick Arnold of conspiring with Bay Area Laboratory-Cooperative founder Victor Conte to illegally distribute the once-undetectable substance tetrahydragestrinone.
Arnold was charged Thursday with three counts of illegally distributing performance-enhancing drugs. His attorneys say Arnold is innocent.
